PREFACE

In the ﬁrst year of calculus we study limits, derivatives, and integrals of functions with a single input, and a single output. The transition to advanced calculus is made when we generalize the notion of “function” to something which may have multiple inputs and multiple outputs. In this more general context limits, derivatives, and integrals take on new meanings and have new geometric interpretations. For example, in ﬁrst-year calculus the derivative represents the slope of a tangent line at a speciﬁed point. When dealing with functions of multiple variables there may be many tangent lines at a point, so there will be many possible ways to differentiate. The emphasis of this book is on developing enough familiarity with the material to solve difﬁcult problems. Rigorous proofs are kept to a minimum. I have included numerous detailed examples so that you may see how the concepts really work. All exercises have detailed solutions that you can ﬁnd at the end of the book. I regard these exercises, along with their solutions, to be an integral part of the material. The present work is suitable for use as a stand-alone text, or as a companion to any standard book on the topic. This material is usually covered as part of a standard calculus sequence, coming just after the ﬁrst full year. Names of college classes that cover this material vary greatly. Possibilities include advanced calculus, multivariable calculus, and vector calculus. At schools with semesters the class may be called Calculus III. At quarter schools it may be Calculus IV. The best way to use this book is to read the material in each section and then try the exercises. If there is any exercise you don’t get, make sure you study the solution carefully. At the end of each chapter you will ﬁnd a quiz to test your understanding. These short quizzes are written to be similar to one that you may encounter in a classroom, and are intended to take 20–30 minutes. They are not meant to test every Copyright © 2007 by The McGraw-Hill Companies. Click here for terms of use.

idea presented in the chapter. The best way to use them is to study the chapter until you feel conﬁdent that you can handle anything that may be asked, and then try the quiz. You should have a good idea of how you did on it after looking at the answers. At the end of the text there is a ﬁnal exam similar to one which you would ﬁnd at the conclusion of a college class. It should take about two hours to complete. Use it as you do the quizzes. Study all of the material in the book until you feel conﬁdent, and then try it. Advanced calculus is an exciting subject that opens up a world of mathematics. It is the gateway to linear algebra and differential equations, as well as more advanced mathematical subjects like analysis, differential geometry, and topology. It is essential for an understanding of physics, lying at the heart of electro-magnetics, ﬂuid ﬂow, and relativity. It is constantly ﬁnding new use in other ﬁelds of science and engineering. I hope that the exciting nature of this material is conveyed here.

CHAPTER 1

Functions of Multiple Variables

1.1 Functions The most common mental model of a function is a machine. When you put some input in to the machine, you will always get the same output. Most of ﬁrst year calculus dealt with functions where the input was a single real number and the output was a single real number. The study of advanced calculus begins by modifying this idea. For example, suppose your “function machine” took two real numbers as its input, and returned a single real output? We illustrate this idea with an example. EXAMPLE 1-1 Consider the function f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 Copyright © 2007 by The McGraw-Hill Companies. Click here for terms of use.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

2

For each value of x and y there is one value of f (x, y). For example, if x = 2 and y = 3 then f (2, 3) = 22 + 32 = 13 One can construct a table of input and output values for f (x, y) as follows: x 0 1 0 1 1 2

y 0 0 1 1 2 1

f (x, y) 0 1 1 2 5 5

Problem 1 Evaluate the function at the indicated point. 1. f (x, y) = x 2 + y 3 ; (x, y) = (3, 2) 2. g(x, y) = sin x + cos y; (x, y) = (0, π2 ) 3. h(x, y) = x 2 sin y; (x, y) = (2, π2 )

Unfortunately, plugging in random points does not give much enlightenment as to the behavior of a function. Perhaps a more visual model would help....

1.2 Three Dimensions In the previous section we saw that plugging random points in to a function of two variables gave almost no enlightening information about the function itself. A far superior way to get a handle on a particular function is to picture its graph. We’ll get to this in the next section. First, we have to say a few words about where such a graph exists. Recall the steps required to graph a function of a single variable, like g(x) = 3x. First, you set the function equal to a new variable, y. Then you plot all the points (x, y) where the equation y = g(x) is true. So, for example, you would not plot (0, 2) because 0 = 3 · 2. But you would plot (2, 6) because 6 = 3 · 2. The same steps are required to plot a function of two variables, like f (x, y). First, you set the function equal to a new variable, z. Then you plot all of the points (x, y, z) where the function z = f (x, y) is true. So we are forced to discuss what it means to plot a point with three coordinates, like (x, y, z).

Figure 1-1 Three mutually perpendicular axes, drawn in perspective

Coordinate systems will play a crucial role in this book, so although most readers will have seen this, it is worth spending some time here. To plot a point with two coordinates such as (x, y) = (2, 3) the ﬁrst step is to draw two perpendicular axes and label them x and y. Then locate a point 2 units from the origin on the x-axis and draw a vertical line. Next, locate a point 3 units from the origin on the y-axis and draw a horizontal line. Finally, the point (2, 3) is at the intersection of the two lines you have drawn. To plot a point with three coordinates the steps are just a bit more complicated. Let’s plot the point (x, y, z) = (2, 3, 2). First, draw three mutually perpendicular axes. You will immediately notice that this is impossible to do on a sheet of paper. The best you can do is two perpendicular axes, and a third at some angle to the other two (see Figure 1-1). With practice you will start to see this third axis as a perspective rendition of a line coming out of the page. When viewed this way it will seem like it is perpendicular. Notice the way in which we labeled the axes in Figure 1-1. This is a convention, i.e., something that mathematicians have just agreed to always do. The way to remember it is by the right hand rule. What you want is to be able to position your right hand so that your thumb is pointing along the z-axis and your other ﬁngers sweep from the x-axis to the y-axis when you make a ﬁst. If the axes are labeled consistent with this then we say you are using a right handed coordinate system. OK, let’s now plot the point (2, 3, 2). First, locate a point 2 units from the origin on the x-axis. Now picture a plane which goes through this point, and is perpendicular to the x-axis. Repeat this for a point 3 units from the origin on the y-axis, and a point 2 units from the origin on the z-axis. Finally, the point (2, 3, 2) is at the intersection of the three planes you are picturing. Given the point (x, y, z) one can “see” the quantities x, y, and z as in Figure 1-2. The quantity z, for example, is the distance from the point to the x y-plane.

1.3 Introduction to Graphing We now turn back to the problem of visualizing a function of multiple variables. To graph the function f (x, y) we set it equal to z and plot all of the points where the equation z = f (x, y) is true. Let’s start with an easy example.

CHAPTER 1

Functions of Multiple Variables

EXAMPLE 1-2 Suppose f (x, y) = 0. That is, f (x, y) is the function that always returns the number 0, no matter what values of x and y are fed to it. The graph of z = f (x, y) = 0 is then the set of all points (x, y, z) where z = 0. This is just the x y-plane. Similarly, now consider the function g(x, y) = 2. The graph is the set of all points where z = g(x, y) = 2. This is a plane parallel to the x y-plane at height 2. We ﬁrst learn to graph functions of a single variable by plotting individual points, and then playing “connect-the-dots.” Unfortunately this method doesn’t work so well in three dimensions (especially when you are trying to depict three dimensions on a piece of paper). A better strategy is to slice up the graph by various planes. This gives you several curves that you can plot. The ﬁnal graph is then obtained by assembling these curves. The easiest slices to see are given by each of the coordinate planes. We illustrate this in the next example. EXAMPLE 1-3 Let’s look at the function f (x, y) = x + 2y. To graph it we must decide which points (x, y, z) make the equation z = x + 2y true. The x z-plane is the set of all points where y = 0. So to see the intersection of the graph of f (x, y) and the x zplane we just set y = 0 in the equation z = x + 2y. This gives the equation z = x, which is a line of slope 1, passing through the origin. Similarly, to see the intersection with the yz-plane we just set x = 0. This gives us the equation z = 2y, which is a line of slope 2, passing through the origin. Finally, we get the intersection with the x y-plane. We must set z = 0, which gives us the equation 0 = x + 2y. This can be rewritten as y = − 12 x. We conclude this is a line with slope − 12 . The ﬁnal challenge is to put all of this information together on one set of axes. See Figure 1-3. We see three lines, in each of the three coordinate planes. The graph of f (x, y) is then some shape that meets each coordinate plane in the required line. Your ﬁrst guess for the shape is probably a plane. This turns out to be correct. We’ll see more evidence for it in the next section. Problem 4 Sketch the intersections of the graphs of the following functions with each of the coordinate planes. 1. 2x + 3y 2. x 2 + y 3. x 2 + y 2

1.4 Graphing Level Curves It’s fairly easy to plot the intersection of a graph with each coordinate plane, but this still doesn’t always give a very good idea of its shape. The next easiest thing to do is sketch some level curves. These are nothing more than the intersection of the graph with horizontal planes at various heights. We often sketch a “bird’s eye view” of these curves to get an initial feeling for the shape of a graph. EXAMPLE 1-4 Suppose f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 . To get the intersection of the graph with a plane at height 4, say, we just have to ﬁgure out which points in R3 satisfy z = x 2 + y 2 and z = 4. Combining these equations gives 4 = x 2 + y 2 , which we recognize as the equation of a circle of radius 2. We can now sketch a view of this intersection from above, and it will look like a circle in the x y-plane. See Figure 1-4. The reason why we often draw level curves in the x y-plane as if we were looking down from above is that it is easier when there are many of them. We sketch several such curves for z = x 2 + y 2 in Figure 1-5. You have no doubt seen level curves before, although they are rarely as simple as in Figure 1-5. For example, in Figure 1-6 we see a topographic map. The lines indicate constant elevation. In other words, these lines are the level curves for the function which gives elevation. In Figure 1-7 we have shown a weather map, with level curves indicating lines of constant temperature. You may see similar maps in a good weather report where level curves represent lines of constant pressure.

EXAMPLE 1-5 We now let f (x, y) = x y. The intersection with the x z-plane is found by setting y = 0, giving us the function z = 0. This just means the graph will include the x-axis. Similarly, setting x = 0 gives us z = 0 as well, so the graph will include the y-axis. Things get more interesting when we plot the level curves. Let’s set z = n, where n is an integer. Solving for y then gives us y = nx . This is a hyperbola in the ﬁrst and third quadrant for n > 0, and a hyperbola in the second and fourth quadrant when n < 0. We sketch this in Figure 1-8.

1.5 Putting It All Together We have now amassed enough tools to get a good feeling for what the graphs of various functions look like. Putting it all together can be quite a challenge. We illustrate this with an example.

Figure 1-9 Sketching the paraboloid z = x 2 + y 2

EXAMPLE 1-6 Let f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 . In Problem 4 you found that the intersections with the x z- and yz-coordinate planes were parabolas. In Example 1-4 we saw that the level curves were circles. We put all of this information together in Figure 1-9(a). Figure 1-9(b) depicts the entire surface which is the graph. This ﬁgure is called a paraboloid. Graph sketching is complicated enough that a second example may be in order. EXAMPLE 1-7 In Figure 1-10 we put together the level curves of f (x, y) = x y, found in Example 1-5, to form its graph. The three-dimensional shape formed is called a saddle. Problem 7 Use your answers to Problems 4 and 5 to sketch the graphs of the following functions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

1.6 Functions of Three Variables There is no reason to stop at functions with two inputs and one output. We can also consider functions with three inputs and one output. EXAMPLE 1-8 Suppose f (x, y, z) = x + x y + yz 2 Then f (1, 1, 1) = 3 and f (0, 1, 2) = 4. To graph such a function we would need to set it equal to some fourth variable, say w, and draw a picture in a space where there are four perpendicular axes, x, y, z, and w. No one can visualize such a space, so we will just have to give up on graphing such functions. But all hope is not lost. We can still describe surfaces in three dimensions that are the level sets of such functions. This is not quite as good as having a graph, but it still helps give one a feel for the behavior of the function. EXAMPLE 1-9 Suppose f (x, y, z) = x 2 + y 2 + z 2 To plot level sets we set f (x, y, z) equal to various integers and sketch the surface described by the resulting equation. For example, when f (x, y, z) = 1 we have 1 = x 2 + y2 + z2

Advanced Calculus Demystified

12

This is precisely the equation of a sphere of radius 1. In √ general the level set corresponding to f (x, y, z) = n will be a sphere of radius n. Problem 8 Sketch the level set corresponding to f (x, y, z) = 1 for the following functions. 1. f (x, y, z) = x 2 + y 2 − z 2 2. f (x, y, z) = x 2 − y 2 − z 2

1.7 Parameterized Curves In the previous sections of this chapter we studied functions which had multiple inputs, but one output. Here we examine the opposite scenario: functions with one input and multiple outputs. The input variable is referred to as the parameter, and is best thought of as time. For this reason we often use the variable t, so that in general such a function might look like c(t) = ( f (t), g(t)) If we ﬁx a value of t and plot the two outputs we get a point in the plane. As t varies this point moves, tracing out a curve, C. We would then say C is a curve that is parameterized by c(t). EXAMPLE 1-10 Suppose c(t) = (cos t, sin t). Then c(0) = (1, 0) and c π2 = (0, 1). If we continue to plot points we see that c(t) traces out a circle of radius 1. Indeed, since cos2 t + sin2 t = 1 the coordinates of c(t) satisfy x 2 + y 2 = 1, the equation of a circle of radius 1. In Figure 1-11 we plot the circle traced out by c(t), along with additional information which tells us what value of t yields selected point of the curve. EXAMPLE 1-11 The function c(t) = (cos t 2 , sin t 2 ) also parameterizes a circle or radius 1, like the parameterization given in Example 1-10. The difference between the two parameterizations can be seen by comparing the spacing of the marked points in Figure 1-11 with those of Figure 1-12. If we think of t as time, then the parameterization

Parameterizations can also describe curves in three-dimensional space, as in the next example. EXAMPLE 1-13 Let c(t) = (cos t, sin t, t). If the third coordinate were not there then this would describe a point moving around a circle. Now as t increases the height off of the x y-plane, i.e., the z-coordinate, also increases. The result is a spiral, as in Figure 1-14.

2.1 Limits of Functions of Multiple Variables The study of calculus begins in earnest with the concept of a limit. Without this one cannot deﬁne derivatives or integrals. Here we undertake the study of limits of functions of multiple variables. Recall that we say lim f (x) = L if you can make f (x) stay as close to L as x→a

you like by restricting x to be close enough to a. Just how close “close enough” is depends on how close you want f (x) to be to L. Intuitively, if lim f (x) = L we think of the values of f (x) as getting closer and x→a closer to L as the value of x gets closer and closer to a. A key point is that it should not matter how the values of x are approaching a. For example, the function f (x) =

x |x|

does not have a limit as x → 0. This is because as x approaches 0 from the right the values of the function f (x) approach 1, while the values of f (x) approach −1 as x approaches 0 from the left. The deﬁnition of limit for functions of multiple variables is very similar. We say lim

(x,y)→(a,b)

f (x, y) = L

if you can make f (x, y) stay as close to L as you like by restricting (x, y) to be close enough to (a, b). Again, just how close “close enough” is depends on how close you want f (x, y) to be to L. Once again, the most useful way to think about this deﬁnition is to think of the values of f (x, y) as getting closer and closer to L as the point (x, y) gets closer and closer to the point (a, b). The difﬁculty is that there are now an inﬁnite number of directions by which one can approach (a, b). EXAMPLE 2-1 Suppose f (x, y) is given by f (x, y) = We consider

lim

(x,y)→(0,0)

x x+y

f (x, y).

First, let’s see what happens as (x, y) approaches (0, 0) along the x-axis. For all such points we know y = 0, and so f (x, y) =

x x = =1 x+y x

Now consider what happens as (x, y) approaches (0, 0) along the y-axis. For all such points we have x = 0, and so f (x, y) =

x 0 = =0 x+y y

We conclude the values of f (x, y) approach different numbers if we let (x, y) approach (0, 0) from different directions. Thus we say lim f (x, y) does not (x,y)→(0,0)

exist. Showing that a limit does not exist can be very difﬁcult. Just because you can ﬁnd multiple ways to come at (a, b) so that the values of f (x, y) approach the

CHAPTER 2

same number L does not necessarily mean

lim

(x,y)→(a,b)

19

f (x, y) = L. There might be

some way to approach (a, b) that you haven’t tried that gives a different number. This is the key to the deﬁnition of limit. We say the function has a limit only when the values of f (x, y) approach the same number no matter how (x, y) approaches (a, b). We illustrate this in the next two examples. EXAMPLE 2-2 Suppose f (x, y) is given by f (x, y) =

x2

xy + y2

As we let (x, y) approach (0, 0) along the x-axis (where y = 0) we have f (x, y) =

x2

0 xy = 2 =0 2 +y x

Similarly, as we let (x, y) approach (0, 0) along the y-axis (where x = 0) we have f (x, y) =

x2

xy 0 = 2 =0 2 +y y

But if we let (x, y) approach (0, 0) along the line y = x we have f (x, y) = So once again we ﬁnd

lim

(x,y)→(0,0)

xy x2 1 = = 2 2 2 x +y 2x 2

f (x, y) does not exist.

Our third example is the trickiest. EXAMPLE 2-3 Let f (x, y) =

x2y x 4 + y2

As (x, y) approaches (0, 0) along the x-axis (where y = 0) we have f (x, y) =

x2y 0 = 4 =0 4 2 x +y x

Advanced Calculus Demystified

20

As (x, y) approaches (0, 0) along the y-axis (where x = 0) we have f (x, y) =

0 x2y = 2 =0 4 2 x +y y

If we approach (0, 0) along the line y = x we get f (x, y) =

x2y x3 x = = 2 4 2 4 2 x +y x +x x +1

As x approaches 0 we have lim

x→0 x 2

x =0 +1

So far it is looking like perhaps lim

(x,y)→(0,0)

x2y =0 x 4 + y2

since, as (x, y) approaches (0, 0) along the x-axis, the y-axis, and the line y = x, the values of f (x, y) approach 0. But what happens if we let (x, y) approach (0, 0) along the curve y = x 2 ? In this case f (x, y) =

x4 1 x2y = = 4 2 4 4 x +y x +x 2

We can evaluate the limit of this function as x approaches 0 by dividing the numerator and denominator by x 4 . lim

x→0

x4 = lim x→0 x2 + x4

1 x2

1 =1 +1

So again the limit does not exist. Problem 14 Show that the following limits do not exist: 1. 2. 3. 4.

2.2 Continuity We say a function f (x, y) is continuous at (a, b) if its limit as (x, y) approaches (a, b) equals its value there. In symbols we write lim

(x,y)→(a, b)

f (x, y) = f (a, b)

Most functions you can easily write down are continuous at every point of their domain. Hence, what you want to avoid are points outside of the domain, where you may have 1. 2. 3. 4.

Division by zero. Square roots of negatives. Logs of nonpositive numbers. Tangents of odd multiples of π2 .

In each of these situations the function does not even exist, in which case it is certainly not continuous. But even if the function exists it may not have a limit. And even if the function exists, and the limits exist, they may not be equal. EXAMPLE 2-4 Suppose f (x, y) =

x+y x 2 + y2

There is no zero in the denominator when (x, y) = (1, 1), so f (x, y) is continuous at (1, 1). EXAMPLE 2-5 Evaluate lim

(x,y)→(0,0)

x 2 y3 x 2 + y2 + 1

There are no values of x and y that will make the denominator 0, so the function is continuous everywhere. Since the value of a continuous function equals its limit, we can evaluate the above simply by plugging in (0, 0). lim

CHAPTER 3

Derivatives

3.1 Partial Derivatives What shall we mean by the derivative of f (x, y) at a point (x0 , y0 )? Just as in one variable calculus, the answer is the slope of a tangent line. The problem with this is that there are multiple tangent lines one can draw to the graph of z = f (x, y) at any given point. Which one shall we pick to represent the derivative? The answer is another question: “Which derivative?” We will see that at any given point there are lots of possible derivatives; one for each tangent line. Another way to think about this is as follows. Suppose we are at the point (x0 , y0 ) and we start moving. While we do this we keep track of the quantity f (x, y). The rate of change that we observe is the derivative, but the answer may depend on which direction we are traveling. Suppose, for example, that we are observing the function f (x, y) = x 2 y, while moving through the point (1, 1) with unit speed. Suppose further that we are traveling parallel to the x-axis, so that our y-coordinate is always one. We would like to know the observed rate of change of f (x, y). Since the y-coordinate is always one

24

Advanced Calculus Demystified

the values of f (x, y) that we observe are always determined by our x-coordinate: f (x, 1) = x 2 . The rate of change of this function is given by its derivative: 2x. Finally, when x = 1 this is the number 2. The above is a particularly easy computation. Given any function, if you are traveling in a direction which is parallel to the x-axis then your y-coordinate is ﬁxed. Plugging this number in for y then gives a function of just x, which we can differentiate. Here’s another example. EXAMPLE 3-1 We compute the rate of change of f (x, y) = x 3 y 3 at the point (1, 2), when we are traveling parallel to the x-axis. During our travels the value of y stays ﬁxed at 2. Hence, the values of the function we are observing are determined by our x-coordinate: f (x, 2) = 8x 3 .The derivative of this function is then 24x 2 , which takes on the value 24 when x is one. What if we wanted to repeat our computations, with different values of y? It would be helpful to keep the letter “y” in our computations, and plug in the value at the very end. Notice that when we plugged in a number for y it became a constant, and was treated as such when we differentiated with respect to x. If we leave the letter y in our computations we can still treat it as a constant. EXAMPLE 3-2 Let f (x, y) = x + x y + y 2 . We wish to treat y as a constant, just as if we had plugged in a number for it, and take the derivative with respect to x. Recall that the derivative of a sum of functions is the sum of the derivatives. So we will discuss the derivatives of each of the terms of x + x y + y 2 individually. There is no occurrence of y in the ﬁrst term, so it is particularly easy. Its derivative is just one. The second term is a little trickier. Since we are treating y as a constant this is of the form const·x. The derivative of such a function is just const. So the derivative of x y is just y. Finally, the quantity y 2 is also a constant. The derivative of a constant is zero. Hence our answer is 1 + y. Notice in the above example that if we thought of x as constant, and y as the variable, then the derivative would have been very different. We need some notation to tell us what is changing and what is being kept constant. We use the symbols ∂∂ xf to represent the partial derivative with respect to x. This means x is considered a

variable, every other letter is a constant, and we differentiate. Similarly, the notation ∂f is the partial derivative with respect to y. ∂y EXAMPLE 3-3 Again we let f (x, y) = x + x y + y 2 . We compute ∂f = x + 2y ∂y There are various other ways to think of partial derivatives that are useful. One is completely algebraic. Recall that the derivative with respect to x of a function f (x) of one variable is deﬁned as the limit df f (x + x) − f (x) = lim x→0 dx x The partial with respect to x is deﬁned similarly. Just remember that y is kept constant, so that f (x, y) really becomes a function of just x. We then apply the above deﬁnition to get: ∂f f (x + x, y) − f (x, y) = lim x→0 ∂x x The partial with respect to y is deﬁned similarly ∂f f (x, y + y) − f (x, y) = lim y→0 ∂y y There is yet another way to think about the partial derivative. We began this section by claiming that the derivative will still represent the slope of a tangent line. In the following ﬁgure we see the graph of an equation z = f (x, y). Through the point (x0 , y0 ) in the xy-plane there is also drawn a vertical plane parallel to the xz-plane. The intersection of this vertical plane with the graph is a curve. The slope of the tangent line to this curve is exactly the value of the partial derivative with respect to x at (x0 , y0 ). To see the partial derivative with respect to y we would have a similar picture, where the vertical plane is parallel to the yz-plane.

3.2 Composition and the Chain Rule 3.2.1 COMPOSITION WITH PARAMETERIZED CURVES Suppose we have a parameterized curve φ(t) = (x(t), y(t)) in the plane. That is, for a given value of t we are given the numbers x(t) and y(t), which we visualize as a point in the plane. We can also take these two numbers and plug them in to

a function f (x, y). The result is the composition f (φ(t)). Notice that only one number goes in to this function, and only one number comes out. EXAMPLE 3-4 Let f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 . Let φ(t) = (t cos t, t sin t). Then f (φ(t)) = f (t cos t, t sin t) = t 2 cos2 t + t 2 sin2 t = t 2 There are various ways to visualize the composition. One is to imagine the graph of z = f (x, y) in three dimensions. Then draw the parameterized curve φ(t) in the x y-plane, and imagine a vertical piece of paper curled up so that it sits on this curve. Now mark where the paper intersects the graph of f (x, y), and unroll it. The result is the graph of f (φ(t)).

Since f (φ(t)) is a function of one variable we can talk about its derivative just as if we were in a ﬁrst term calculus class. But what we want to do here is relate it to the derivatives of f (x, y), x(t), and y(t). The formula we end up with is the multivariable calculus version of the “chain rule” d ∂ f dx ∂ f dy f (φ(t)) = + dt ∂ x dt ∂ y dt EXAMPLE 3-5 Let f (x, y) and φ(t) be deﬁned as in the previous example.

much faster directly. We know from the previous example that f (φ(t)) = t 2. So the derivative function is 2t. Plugging in t = π6 then immediately gives (2) π6 = π3 . Problem 21 Let φ(t) = (2t, t 2 ). Suppose you don’t know what f (x, y) is, but you know ∂∂ xf (2, 1) = 6 and ∂∂ yf (2, 1) = −1. Compute dtd f (φ(1)). Problem 22 Suppose you don’t know what φ(t) = (x(t), y(t)) is, but you know φ(2) = (1, 3), x (2) = −2, and y (2) = 1. Let f (x, y) = x 2 y. Compute d f (φ(2)). dt

3.2.2 COMPOSITION OF FUNCTIONS OF MULTIPLE VARIABLES We now look at the idea of composition with more complicated types of functions, as in our next example. EXAMPLE 3-6 Let x(u, v) = uv and y(u, v) = u 2 + v 2 . Suppose f (x, y) = x + y. Then we may form the composition f (x(u, v), y(u, v)) as follows. f (x(u, v), y(u, v)) = x(u, v) + y(u, v) = uv + u 2 + v 2 Notice that the result is a function whose input is a pair of numbers, u and v, and whose output is a single number. Hence, we may talk about the partial derivatives, with respect to u and v, of the function given by composition. The result is given by another variant of the chain rule. As in the previous example, we will begin with the functions x(u, v), y(u, v), and f (x, y). The following formulas give the partial derivatives of the composition f (x(u, v), y(u, v)). ∂f ∂ f ∂x ∂ f ∂y = + ∂u ∂ x ∂u ∂ y ∂u ∂ f ∂x ∂ f ∂y ∂f = + ∂v ∂ x ∂v ∂ y ∂v At this point it is mathematically meaningless to think of terms like “∂ x” as entities in themselves that can be canceled, but thinking this way may help you remember the above formulas. Note that the formula for the partial derivative of f with respect to u, for example, has two terms. If you cancel the “quantity” ∂ x in the ﬁrst term, and ∂ y in the second, you are left with ∂∂uf in both.

EXAMPLE 3-7 Let f (x, y) = x 2 + x y. Suppose we don’t know x(u, v) or y(u, v), but we know ∂y x(1, 2) = 3, y(1, 3) = −2, ∂∂ux (1, 2) = −1, and ∂u (1, 2) = 5. Then we may use the chain rule to compute ∂∂uf (1, 2). To do this we will need to know ∂∂ xf and ∂∂ yf at the point (x(1, 2), y(1, 2)) = (3, −2). ∂f (3, −2) = (2)(3) + (−2) = 4, ∂x

∂f (3, −2) = 3 ∂y

We now employ the chain rule: ∂ f ∂x ∂ f ∂y ∂f = + ∂u ∂ x ∂u ∂ y ∂u = (4)(−1) + (3)(5) = 11 Problem 23 The following table lists values for a function f (x, y) and its partial derivatives.

3.3 Second Partials In the previous sections we saw that the partial derivatives of a function f (x, y) are also functions of x and y. We can therefore take the derivative again with respect to either variable. EXAMPLE 3-8 Let f (x, y) = x 2 y 3 . The partial derivatives are ∂∂ xf = 2x y 3 and ∂∂ yf = 3x 2 y 2 . We can take the partial derivative again of both of these functions with respect to either variable: ∂ ∂x ∂ ∂x

= 6x y 2 ,

∂f = 6x y 2 ∂x

∂ ∂f = 6x 2 y ∂y ∂y

The quantities ∂∂y∂fx and ∂∂x∂fy are called the mixed partials. The above example illustrates an amazing fact: Under reasonable conditions the mixed partials are always equal! The “reasonable conditions” are only that the mixed partials exist and are themselves continuous functions. The proof of this goes back to the limit deﬁnition of the partial derivative. 2

Integration

4.1 Integrals over Rectangular Domains The integral of a function of one variable gives the area under the graph and above an interval on the x-axis called the domain of integration. For functions of two variables the graph is a surface. We will interpret the act of integration as that of ﬁnding the volume below the surface, and above some region in the x y-plane. Eventually, we will examine how to do this with very general-shaped regions. We begin by looking at rectangles. y

4.2 Integrals over Nonrectangular Domains In the previous section we saw how to compute the volume under the graph of a function and above a rectangle. But what if we are interested in the volume which lies above a nonrectangular area? For example, suppose now that R is the region of the x y-plane that is bounded by the graph of y = g(x), the x-axis, and the line x = 1. We would like to ﬁnd the volume of the ﬁgure V which lies below the graph of z = f (x, y) and above the region R. z y z = f(x, y)

In the previous section we computed volume by breaking up the region in question into small boxes. Our strategy here is to cut it into “slabs” parallel to the yz-plane. To specify the location of each slab we must give a value of x. Hence, the volume of each slab, calculated as an integral with respect to y, is a function of x. Adding the slabs up is just like integrating with respect to x. We follow these steps: 1. Choose points {xi } in the interval [0, 1]. 2. Compute the area A(xi ) of the intersection of V with the plane x = xi . We do this by plugging xi in for the variable x in the function f (x, y) and then integrating with respect to y. Notice that y ranges from 0 to g(xi ) on

The key to understanding this formula is the limits of integration. Each slab is parallel to the y-axis. The area of the side of the slab is thus computed as an integral with respect to y. But the range of values that y can take on depends on what the value of x is. Hence, the limits of integration of the inner integral depend on x. EXAMPLE 4-4 Let R be the region in the x y-plane bounded by the graph of y = x 2 , the x-axis, and the line x = 1. We compute the volume below the graph of z = x y 2 and above R as follows: 1 x 2 Volume =

The domain S is pictured in the following ﬁgure. Notice that for a ﬁxed value √ y0 of y the range of values that x can take on goes from 0 to y0 . This tells us the limits of integration for the inner integral. The smallest value y0 can be is 1 and the largest value is 2. These are the limits for the outer integral. y

Often you can set up an integral in two ways: one so that d x comes ﬁrst, and one so that dy comes ﬁrst. Sometimes you’ll ﬁnd that only one of these ways makes the problem accessible. We illustrate this in the next example. EXAMPLE 4-7 Let P be the region of the xy-plane bounded by the graph of y = x, the x-axis, and 2 the line x = 1. We wish to integrate the function f (x, y) = e−x over P. y

If, on the other hand, we ﬁx a value x0 of x then y can range from 0 to x, as in the ﬁgure on the right. The smallest possibility for x is 0 and the largest possibility is 1. This tells us that the integral can also be set up as 1 x 0

4.3 Computing Volume with Triple Integrals The cylindrical ﬁgure pictured below has a base with area A and has height 1. The volume is therefore the product of these quantities, namely A · 1 = A. But the top surface of this ﬁgure is the graph of the equation z = 1. The integral of this function

gives the volume below the graph, which we just found out was A. In other words, if you want to ﬁnd the area of a region R of the x y-plane, you just need to compute the integral of the function f (x, y) = 1 over R: Area(R) = 1 d x dy R

EXAMPLE 4-8 Suppose R is the region below the graph of y = g(x), above the x-axis, and between the lines x = a and x = b. Then we can ﬁnd the area of R by evaluating the double integral: b g(x) Area(R) = 1 dy d x a

which should, of course, be familiar from ﬁrst term calculus as the area under the graph of y = g(x). Just as one can compute area by evaluating the double integral of the function f (x, y) = 1, one can also compute volume by a triple integral of the function f (x, y, z) = 1. The tricky part usually involves ﬁnding the limits of integration.

For the second integration we just ﬁx x, and observe that y can vary from 0 to x. Finally, the smallest value that x can take on is 0 and the largest is 1, determining the limits of the outermost integral. We now compute 1 x x+y Volume(V ) = 1 dz dy dx 0

CHAPTER 5

Cylindrical and Spherical Coordinates

5.1 Cylindrical Coordinates A coordinate system is a systematic way of locating a point in (some) space by specifying a few numbers. The coordinate system you are most familiar with is called rectangular coordinates. In R3 this works by specifying x, y, and z, which represent distances along the x-, y-, and z-axes, respectively. Rectangular coordinates are extremely cumbersome when trying to deﬁne certain common shapes, such as cylinders or spheres. A second way to determine the location of a point is to adapt polar coordinates to three dimensions. In this case we give a location in the xy-plane by a value of r and θ, and then the height off of the xy-plane by a value of z.

Converting from cylindrical coordinates to rectangular coordinates is as easy as it is in polar coordinates. The z coordinate is exactly the same in both systems. To get x and y you just use the formulas x = r cos θ y = r sin θ

EXAMPLE 5-1 We locate the point r = 2, θ = π6 , and z = 7 in rectangular coordinates: x = 2 cos

√ π = 3 6

y = 2 sin

π =1 6

√ So the desired point is at ( 3, 1, 7).

Problem 40 Write the rectangular coordinates of the following points. 1. (r, θ, z) = (2, π4 , −1) 2. (r, θ, z) = (0, π7 , 3) 3. (r, θ, z) = (4, π3 , 0)

CHAPTER 5

51

5.2 Graphing Cylindrical Equations To get a real feel for cylindrical coordinates it is helpful to look at the graphs of a few simple equations. The graph of something like z = 3 in cylindrical coordinates is the same as the graph of z = 3 in rectangular coordinates (it’s the same z!): a horizontal plane that hits the z-axis at 3. The next two examples are a bit more interesting. EXAMPLE 5-2 Consider the cylindrical equation r = 3. This is the set of all points in R3 which are exactly 3 units away from the z-axis. The shape is a cylinder of radius 3 centered on the z-axis. EXAMPLE 5-3 We now examine the cylindrical equation θ = π4 . This describes the set of all points that make an angle of π4 with the x z-plane. The shape is a plane through the z-axis that is halfway between the x z-plane and the yz-plane. z

y π 4

x

More complicated equations involve relationships between r , θ, and z, as in the next example. EXAMPLE 5-4 Consider the equation z = r 2 . To visualize the graph we are being instructed to ﬁnd all of the points in R3 whose z-coordinate is the square of their distance to the z-axis. The most relevant feature of the equation, however, is the lack of the coordinate θ. This tells us that no matter what θ is we will see the same picture.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

52

Following this observation we consider the half plane which meets the z-axis at some arbitrary angle. Take this plane out of the picture and look at it head-on, as in the ﬁgure below. As you move left and right in this plane it is the quantity r that is changing. As you move up and down it is z that changes. Hence, it makes sense to label our axes r and z in this plane. z z

y

x

In the half plane at the right we have depicted the graph of z = r 2 , a familiar parabola. Now, the key to understanding the complete picture is to place this parabola in every half plane at the left. The result is the surface that you get when you rotate the graph of y = x 2 (in R2 ) around the y-axis. It is called a paraboloid, and is depicted below (see also Figure 1-9 for a computer-generated picture). z

5.3 Spherical Coordinates Cylindrical coordinates are very convenient for describing cylinders and other surfaces of revolution. In this section we explore spherical coordinates, which are useful for describing many other shapes. To locate a point using spherical coordinates you need to know three quantities: ρ (pronounced “Row”), θ, and φ (pronounced “Fee”). The quantity θ is precisely the same as in cylindrical coordinates. ρ is the distance from the origin. φ is the angle with the z-axis, as pictured below. z

r

y x

Given the spherical coordinates of a point we would like to be able to convert to rectangular coordinates. The easiest quantity to ﬁnd is z. Consider the triangle in the ﬁgure below. The side adjacent to the angle φ is precisely z. The hypotenuse is ρ. So cos φ = ρz . Solving for z then gives z = ρ cos φ

Advanced Calculus Demystified

54

z = r cos f z r

z f

r

y x

To ﬁnd x and y it is helpful to ﬁrst ﬁnd the quantity r from cylindrical coordinates. Going back to the triangle in the above ﬁgure, we see that the side opposite the angle φ is precisely r . Hence, sin φ = ρr , and thus r = ρ sin φ We know from the previous section that x = r cos θ and y = r sin θ . Substituting for r gives x = ρ sin φ cos θ y = ρ sin φ sin θ

EXAMPLE 5-5 We ﬁnd the rectangular coordinates of the point where ρ = 2, θ = π3 , and φ = π6 . π π 1 cos = 6 3 2 √ 3 π π y = 2 sin sin = 6 3 2 √ π z = 2 cos = 3 6

Problem 43 Convert the following to rectangular coordinates. 1. (ρ, θ, φ) = (0, π2 , π6 ) 2. (ρ, θ, φ) = (3, π, π2 ) 3. (ρ, θ, φ) = (4, π4 , π3 )

5.4 Graphing Spherical Equations We now explore the graphs of several equations in spherical coordinates. EXAMPLE 5-6 The simplest equation to understand is something like ρ = 2. This describes the set of all points that are precisely 2 units away from the origin. In other words, this is a sphere of radius 2. If θ is a constant then the equation is the same in spherical coordinates and cylindrical coordinates; a plane through the z-axis. The previous example shows that when ρ is constant we get a sphere. In the next example we see what happens when φ is held constant. EXAMPLE 5-7 Consider the equation φ = π6 . This describes the points which make an angle of with the z-axis. This is a circular cone, centered on the z-axis.

As with cylindrical coordinates, things get more difﬁcult when equations involve relationships between multiple coordinates. EXAMPLE 5-8 We graph the equation ρ = φ. Notice that the coordinate θ does not appear in the equation. This tells us that the intersection of the graph with every half plane incident to the z-axis is the same. (Recall that we encountered a similar type of graph when we looked at some cylindrical equations.) This, in turn, tells us that the graph is a surface of revolution. In the following ﬁgure we have sketched one half plane. In this half plane we have indicated how a spiral is the graph of ρ = φ. z

r r

To form the complete graph we must now take this spiral and rotate it about the z-axis. In the previous example we saw that when θ did not appear in a spherical equation the graph was a surface of revolution. In the next example we explore what happens when φ does not appear in a spherical equation. EXAMPLE 5-9 We now explore the graph of ρ = θ. We do this again by investigating various half planes incident to the z-axis. This time the pictures are not all the same. When θ = 0, for example, we are looking at the graph of ρ = 0, which is just a point. When θ = π2 we are looking at ρ = π2 , which is half of a circle of radius π2 . As θ increases we see larger and larger half circles incident to the z-axis, as in the ﬁgure below.

CHAPTER 6

Parameterizations

6.1 Parameterized Surfaces In Chapter 1 we encountered parameterized curves. These were functions that had one input (the parameter) and multiple outputs. One visualizes such curves by drawing the range of the function. In this section we introduce parameterized surfaces. These are functions which have two inputs and multiple (usually three) outputs. Again, we visualize such functions by picturing their range. This is most often some surface in R3 . EXAMPLE 6-1 We explore the parameterization given by ψ(u, v) = (u, v, u 2 + v 2 ) Note that for each point in the range of ψ the z-coordinate is obtained from the x and y coordinates by squaring them and adding. In other words, if a point is in the range of ψ then it is also on the graph of z = x 2 + y 2 . This is the paraboloid depicted in Figure 1-9. Copyright © 2007 by The McGraw-Hill Companies. Click here for terms of use.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

60

EXAMPLE 6-2 We now look at a slight modiﬁcation of the previous example. ψ(u, v) = (2u, v, u 2 + v 2 ) Note that this parameterization is obtained from the previous one by doubling the x-coordinate of every point. This has the effect of stretching the graph in the x-direction. Intersections with horizontal planes will thus be ellipses, as opposed to circles as in the previous example. Example 6-1 illustrated another important idea. Suppose we want to represent the graph of a function z = f (x, y) as a parameterized surface. Then we may simply write ψ(u, v) = (u, v, f (u, v)) Note that the z-coordinate of every point in the range is obtained from the x- and y-coordinates by plugging them into f . Hence, each point in the range is indeed on the graph of f . It is not much more difﬁcult to represent graphs in other coordinate systems as parameterized surfaces. The trick is to always translate to rectangular coordinates. EXAMPLE 6-3 Suppose we want to write the graph of the cylindrical equation z = r 2 as a parameterized surface. First, we write down the translation from cylindrical to rectangular coordinates: x = r cos θ y = r sin θ z=z Now we substitute r 2 for z: x = r cos θ y = r sin θ z = r2 Hence, a parameterization may be written as follows: ψ(r, θ ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, r 2 )

CHAPTER 6

EXAMPLE 6-4 Suppose we want to ﬁnd a parameterization for the graph of the spherical equation ρ = cos φ First we write down the translation from spherical to rectangular coordinates: x = ρ sin φ cos θ y = ρ sin φ sin θ z = ρ cos φ Now we substitute cos φ for ρ: x = cos φ sin φ cos θ y = cos φ sin φ sin θ z = cos φ cos φ This gives us the parameterization ψ(θ, φ) = (cos φ sin φ cos θ, cos φ sin φ sin θ, cos φ cos φ) Problem 47 Find parameterizations for the graphs of the following equations. 1. z = x 2 2. r = θ 2 3. ρ = θ 2 Problem 48 The following are parameterizations of the graphs of rectangular, cylindrical, or spherical equations. Find these equations. 1. φ(ρ, θ) = (ρ sin θ cos θ, ρ sin2 θ, ρ cos θ) 2. φ(x, z) = (x, x + x z, z) 3. φ(r, θ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, sin r )

6.2 The Importance of the Domain When you are trying to specify a particular shape, the domain of the parameterization can be just as important as the function. We illustrate this with an example. EXAMPLE 6-5 Suppose we want to parameterize the part of a sphere of radius 1 that lies in the ﬁrst octant (i.e., the region of R3 where x, y, z ≥ 0). The equation of a sphere is particularly simple in spherical coordinates, so we start here. Such an equation is ρ = 1. Writing down the translation to rectangular coordinates and substituting 1 for ρ then yields the parameterization ψ(θ, φ) = (sin φ cos θ, sin φ sin θ, cos φ) But how do we make sure we just get the part of the sphere we want? The answer is to restrict the values of θ and φ that can be plugged into φ: 0≤θ ≤

0≤φ≤

These ranges constitute the domain of φ.

EXAMPLE 6-6 We parameterize the portion of the graph of z = r 2 that lies inside the cylinder x 2 + y 2 = 1. The equation whose graph we are interested in is given in cylindrical coordinates, so it is natural to start there. The restriction on the domain can also be naturally expressed in cylindrical coordinates, so we do not anticipate any problems. In Example 6-3, we found a parameterization for the desired surface: ψ(r, θ ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, r 2 ) The points of R3 that lie inside the cylinder x 2 + y 2 = 1 all have r ≤ 1. Hence, we restrict the domain of our parameterization to 0 ≤ r ≤ 1,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π

Problem 49 The function ψ(θ, φ) = (sin φ cos θ, sin φ sin θ, cos φ) parameterizes a sphere of radius 1. How would you restrict the values of θ and φ to just get the portion of the sphere where 1. x, y ≥ 0 2. x ≤ 0, y ≥ 0, z ≤ 0 Problem 50 Describe the difference between the shapes with the following parameterizations. 1. (x, y) = (x, y, x 2 + y 2 ); 0 ≤ x ≤ 1, 0 ≤ y ≤ 1 2. (r, θ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, r ); 0 ≤ r ≤ 1, 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π 3. (r, θ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, r ); 0 ≤ r ≤ 1, 0 ≤ θ ≤ π

6.3 This Stuff Can Be Hard! Parameterizations are extremely powerful tools that can describe very complicated surfaces. But with such great power can come great difﬁculty. There may be no obvious way to look at a complicated parameterization and know what shape it describes. For example, consider the parameterization φ(t, u) = ((4 + cos t + 2 sin u) cos(2u), (4 + cos t + 2 sin u) sin(2u), sin t + 2 cos u) 0 ≤ t ≤ 2π,

0 ≤ u ≤ 2π

No expert would be able to look at an equation so complicated and immediately know what it looks like. This is where computers become an invaluable tool. Plugging this equation into a standard graphing program reveals the following beautiful picture.

Despite the apparent difﬁculty in understanding such complicated functions, there are a few tricks that can help. These are basic ways in which you can take a parameterization and modify it to suit your needs. For example, if you multiply some coordinate by a constant, this has the effect of stretching the parameterized shape by that factor. If you add a constant to some coordinate the shape is moved in that direction. EXAMPLE 6-7 Consider the following parameterization: (θ, φ) = (2 sin φ cos θ + 1, 3 sin φ sin θ − 2, cos φ) 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤φ≤π

This looks much like a parameterization of a sphere from spherical coordinates. But the x-coordinate was multiplied by 2, and then 1 was added to it. Similarly, the y-coordinate was multiplied by 3 and then 2 was subtracted from it. Thus the parameterized shape is an ellipsoid with center at (1, −2, 0).

6.4 Parameterized Areas and Volumes Earlier in the text we looked at parameterized curves in R2 and R3 . This chapter began with parameterized surfaces in R3 . Now we look at parameterized areas in R2 and parameterized volumes in R3 . Often these types of parameterizations begin with writing down the translation from some coordinate system to rectangular coordinates, and then restricting the domain.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

66

EXAMPLE 6-8 The translation from polar coordinates to rectangular coordinates is given by x = r cos θ y = r sin θ We can use this to parameterize the area that is both inside the unit circle and in the ﬁrst quadrant: (r, θ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ) π 0 ≤ r ≤ 1, 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2 Note that it is the restriction on the domain that guarantees that the correct area is parameterized.

EXAMPLE 6-9 Let R be the region below the graph of y = f (x), above the x-axis, and between the lines x = a and x = b. Then R is parameterized by (x, t) = (x, t f (x)) a ≤ x ≤ b,

0≤t ≤1

In three dimensions one usually begins with rectangular, cylindrical, or spherical coordinates. EXAMPLE 6-10 Consider the parameterization (r, θ, z) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, z) 1 ≤ r ≤ 2,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤z≤1

The function itself is just the translation from cylindrical to rectangular coordinates. The restriction on the domain means that we have only parameterized the region between cylinders of radii 1 and 2, and between the planes z = 0 and z = 1.

Of course, as in the previous section, one can distort and move shapes by multiplying and adding constants to each coordinate. EXAMPLE 6-11 We examine the parameterization (ρ, θ, φ) = (2ρ sin φ cos θ, ρ sin φ sin θ, ρ cos φ) 0 ≤ ρ ≤ 1,

CHAPTER 7

Vectors and Gradients

7.1 Introduction to Vectors Mathematically, there is very little difference between a vector and a point. In two dimensions, for example, a point is really just a pair of numbers. We visualize this pair as a dot in a plane. A two-dimensional vector is similar. Technically, it is also just a pair of numbers. But this time we visualize it as an arrow (Figure 7-1). This arrow does not have a preferred location. The two numbers that specify it only give its magnitude (i.e., size) and direction. This can be convenient, since certain algebraic operations with vectors can be seen visually by moving them around. Some differences between points and vectors are purely cosmetic. For example, the numbers that you give to specify a point are called its coordinates. The numbers that specify a vector are its components. The main difference between points and vectors is that we can do algebra with vectors. This is a topic studied in detail in a class on linear algebra. We will need some of the ideas from linear algebra here. The ﬁrst algebraic operation we will study with vectors is addition. This is very easy: to add two vectors we simply add its components.

EXAMPLE 7-1 We compute the sum of the vectors 2, 3 and −1, 2 as follows: 2, 3 + −1, 2 = 2 − 1, 3 + 2 = 1, 5 We can visualize the operation of addition as follows. To add a vector V to a vector W we slide W so that its “tail” (the base of the arrow) coincides with the “tip” of V . The result of V + W is then the vector whose tail is at the tail of V and whose tip is at the tip of W . W

V

−V V +W

Negatives are equally easy. If V is a vector then we let −V denote the vector whose components are the negatives of the components of V . The picture, of course, is a vector which has the same length as V , but points in the exact opposite direction.

CHAPTER 7

Vectors and Gradients

71

EXAMPLE 7-2 If V = 2, 3 then −V = −2, −3. Finally, we deﬁne subtraction by combining addition and negatives: V − W = V + (−W ) The result of subtraction is therefore exactly what you would expect: the vector whose components are the difference between those of V and W . The magnitude (or length) of a vector is easily computed by the Pythagorean Theorem. We denote the magnitude of a vector V by the absolute value bars | · |. Hence, |a, b| = a 2 + b2 EXAMPLE 7-3 √ √ √ 2 √ 2 2 2 2 2 + = , = 2 2 2 2

1 1 + =1 2 2

A vector whose length is one is often called a unit vector. Another common operation is multiplying a vector by a number. This is referred to as scalar multiplication. Like addition and subtraction, this is done componentwise. That is, the product of a scalar (i.e., a number) c and a vector V is a vector whose components are c times the components of V . That is, c a, b = ca, cb Geometrically, scalar multiplication produces a vector which points in the same direction, but whose magnitude has been altered by the given scale factor. For example, if we multiply a vector by the scalar 2, then we get a new vector, pointing in the same direction, which is twice as long. EXAMPLE 7-4 Suppose we would like to ﬁnd a unit vector that points in the same direction as 3, 4. The trick is to multiply it by some scalar, and arrange it so that the resulting vector has length one. In other words, we would like to ﬁnd a number c such that |c 3, 4 | = 1

Advanced Calculus Demystified

72 A quick computation gives us

|c3, 4| = |3c, 4c| = (3c)2 + (4c)2 √ = 25c2 = 5c Hence, 5c = 1, and so c = 15 . We now multiply the vector 3, 4 by this number ! " to get the answer 35 , 45 . Problem 57 For the following vectors V and W compute V + W , −V , and V − W . 1. V = 1, 6, W = 6, 1 2. V = 0, 0, W = 1, 2 3. V = −1, 1, W = 1, −2 Problem 58 Find the magnitude of the following vectors. 1. 2, 3 2. 1, 3 Problem 59 Find a unit vector that points in the same direction as 2, 1. Problem 60 Find a unit vector that is perpendicular to the vector 5, 12.

7.2 Dot Products After we have mastered the basic operations of addition and subtraction we move on to multiplication. Unfortunately, we do not have anything quite as straightforward. It is tempting to deﬁne the product of V and W as the vector whose components are the products of the components of V and W . This particular operation, however, does not turn out to be terribly useful. Instead we deﬁne the product of two vectors V and W to be the sum of the products of the components. This means the result of multiplication is a single number, as opposed to a vector. This product is called the dot product, since it is always denoted with a dot. In symbols, we write a, b · c, d = ac + bd

CHAPTER 7

Vectors and Gradients

73

EXAMPLE 7-5 2, 3 · 3, 4 = 6 + 12 = 18 The usefulness of the dot product comes from the fact that it has a nice geometric interpretation. Suppose the angle between vectors V and W is θ. Then, V · W = |V ||W | cos θ This follows from some tricky trigonometry as follows. Consider the following triangle: V − W W V

Now recall the Law of Cosines, which says that if a triangle has side lengths a, b, and c, and the angle between a and b is θ , then c2 = a 2 + b2 − 2ab cos θ If we apply this to the above triangle we get |V − W |2 = |V |2 + |W |2 − 2|V ||W | cos θ which we can rearrange to |V ||W | cos θ =

|V |2 + |W |2 − |V − W |2 2

Now suppose V = v1 , v2 and W = w1 , w2 . Then, v 2 + v22 + w12 + w22 − (v1 − w1 )2 − (v2 − w2 )2 |V |2 + |W |2 − |V − W |2 = 1 2 2 2v1 w1 + 2v2 w2 = 2 = v1 w1 + v2 w2

74

Advanced Calculus Demystified

And so V · W = v1 w1 + v2 w2 = |V ||W | cos θ In retrospect, this formula is very reasonable. Consider two extreme cases: Case 1. Suppose we take the dot product of V with itself. By deﬁnition, V · V = v1 v1 + v2 v2 = v12 + v22 But in this case θ = 0, so cos θ = 1. Hence, # # |V ||V | cos θ = |V ||V | = v12 + v22 v12 + v22 = v12 + v22 Case 2. The other extreme case is when V and W are perpendicular. The slope of the line containing V is vv21 . Similarly, the slope of the line containing W is w2 . If these lines are perpendicular then their slopes are negative reciprocals, so w1 v2 1 = −w . Cross multiplying and bringing everything to one side of the equation v1 w2 then gives v1 w1 + v2 w2 = 0. But the quantity on the left is precisely the deﬁnition of V · W . To verify the cosine formula just note that if V and W are perpendicular then cos θ = 0, so |V ||W | cos θ = 0 as well. EXAMPLE 7-6 The cosine of the angle between vectors 2, 3 and −1, 2 can be found using the dot product 2, 3 · −1, 2 = −2 + 6 = 4 = |2, 3||−1, 2| cos θ √ √ = 4 + 9 1 + 4 cos θ √ = 65 cos θ Hence,

√ 4 65 4 cos θ = √ = 65 65

EXAMPLE 7-7 Since the cosine of the angle between two vectors is zero if and only if the vectors are perpendicular, the dot product can be used to detect this. For example, 2, 3 · −6, 4 = −12 + 12 = 0 so these vectors must be perpendicular.

7.3 Gradient Vectors and Directional Derivatives In this section we return to the concept of differentiation of functions of two variables. Recall that the partial derivative ∂∂ xf was the rate of change of the function f (x, y) if you walk in the positive x-direction with unit speed. Similarly, the partial derivative ∂∂ yf is the rate of change if you walk in the positive y-direction with unit speed. We are left with the obvious question, “What is the rate of change of f (x, y) if you walk in some other direction?” Let V = a, b represent a vector which points in the direction of travel. The length of V will be one, to reﬂect the fact that we are walking with unit speed. We already know two things: Rate of change of f (x, y) in direction 1, 0 =

∂f ∂f ∂f =1 +0 ∂x ∂x ∂y

Rate of change of f (x, y) in direction 0, 1 =

∂f ∂f ∂f =0 +1 ∂y ∂x ∂y

Advanced Calculus Demystified

76 It is reasonable, then, to expect

Rate of change of f (x, y) in direction a, b = a

∂f ∂f +b ∂x ∂y

EXAMPLE 7-8 Suppose f (x,$ √y) =√ x%y 2 . Then the rate of change of f (x, y), at the point (2, 1), in the direction 22 , 22 is √

√ √ √ √ 5 2 2 ∂f 2 ∂f 2 2 (2, 1) + (2, 1) = 1+ 4= 2 ∂x 2 ∂y 2 2 2

The rate of change of f (x, y), in the direction of V , is called a directional derivative, and is denoted as ∇V f (x, y). Hence, we have the formula ∇V f (x, y) = a

∂f ∂f +b ∂x ∂y

But notice that the right side of this equation can be rewritten as a dot product: &

∂f ∂f , ∇V f (x, y) = a, b · ∂x ∂y

'

$ % We can further shorten this equation by coming up with new notation for ∂∂ xf , ∂∂ yf . Henceforth we will call this vector the gradient of f , and denote it as ∇ f . The equation for ∇V f then becomes ∇V f = V · ∇ f EXAMPLE 7-9 The gradient of the function f (x, y) = x 2 y 3 at the point (x, y) is ! " ∇ f (x, y) = 2x y 3 , 3x 2 y 2 The gradient at the point (1, 1), then, would be ∇ f (1, 1) = 2, 3. Recall that the rate of change of a function is also the slope of a tangent line to its graph, as long as you are traveling with speed one. Here’s a nice way to think about the situation. Suppose you are climbing a mountain, and you have a good trail map

in your hands. Let (x, y) be your coordinates when you locate yourself on the map. The function f (x, y) is your elevation at that point. Now turn your body to face the direction V (on your map). If you sight up or down so that your gaze just grazes the mountainside then you are looking along the tangent line whose slope is given by ∇V f . Acme Trail Map V

You are here

Recall that the dot product is given by the product of the magnitudes of the two vectors, times the cosine of the angle between them. If we ﬁx the point we are at then ∇ f is a ﬁxed vector. If |V | = 1, then the only way to change ∇V f = V · ∇ f is to change the angle between V and ∇ f . The largest this quantity can be is when the value of cos θ is largest. This happens when θ = 0. We conclude that the largest value of ∇V f is given by ∇V f = V · ∇ f = |V ||∇ f | cos θ = |∇ f | and that this value is attained when V (the direction we are facing) coincides with the direction of ∇ f . In other words, if you are on the mountainside and you want to face directly uphill you should point yourself in the direction of the gradient vector. When you do this and sight along the mountainside the slope you see is the magnitude of the gradient vector. EXAMPLE 7-10 2 Let f (x, y) = e x y . At the point (x, y) the gradient vector is % $ 2 2 ∇ f (x, y) = y 2 e x y , 2x ye x y

Advanced Calculus Demystified

78

So, at the point (2, 3) we have ∇ f (2, 3) = 9e18 , 12e18 . The largest slope of any tangent line to the graph at the point (2, 3) is then given by |9e18 , 12e18 | = (9e18 )2 + (12e18 )2 = 15e18 What if you were standing on the mountainside and wanted to face the direction you would have to travel to keep your elevation constant? In other words, how would you ﬁnd the direction of your level curve? If you were facing such a direction you would be looking along a horizontal line, i.e., a line whose slope is zero. The only way for ∇V f = V · ∇ f to be zero is for V and ∇ f to be perpendicular. EXAMPLE 7-11 2 Suppose again f (x, y) = e x y . In the previous example we saw ∇ f (2, 3) = 9e18 , 12e18 . A vector which points in a direction perpendicular to this would be 4, −3 (Check this!). Hence, this vector is tangent to a level curve at the point (2, 3). Problem 65 For each of the functions f (x, y) below answer the following questions:

• Find the gradient vector ∇ f (x, y). the rate of change of f (x, y) at the point (1, 1) in the direction • !Calculate " 3 4

1. x ln y 2. 2x + 3y 3. x 2 y + x y 3

7.4 Maxima, Minima, and Saddles At a local maximum or a local minimum of a graph the tangent plane is horizontal. Another way to say this is that the slope of every tangent line to a local maximum or minimum is zero. But recall that the slope of a tangent line at (x, y) in direction V is given by V · ∇ f . The only way for this to be zero for every possible V is if ∇ f is the zero vector.

CHAPTER 7

Vectors and Gradients

79

EXAMPLE 7-12 We show that f (x, y) = x 2 y 3 cannot have a maximum or minimum at any point where x and y are nonzero. The gradient is ! " ∇ f (x, y) = 2x y 3 , 3x 2 y 2 If x and y are nonzero then this is not the zero vector. This tells us that there is a direction where the slopes of tangent lines are nonzero, and hence we cannot be at a local maximum or minimum. Unfortunately, just because the gradient is the zero vector it does not necessarily mean that there is a local maximum or minimum. EXAMPLE 7-13 The gradient of f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 and g(x, y) = x 2 − y 2 is 0, 0 at the origin. The function f (x, y) has a minimum there, while g(x, y) has a saddle. In a ﬁrst-semester calculus class you learned to detect local maxima and minima by a second-derivative test. We would like to do the same thing here. The problem, of course, is that there are four second partial derivatives! To keep track of all this information we often write them in a matrix, as follows: ⎡ 2 ⎤ ∂ f ∂2 f ⎢ ∂x2 ∂ x∂ y ⎥ ⎢ ⎥ ⎣ ∂2 f ∂2 f ⎦ ∂ y∂ x ∂ y 2 Now we examine this matrix for several functions whose graph is familiar. Each of these has a gradient vector equal to zero at the origin. 1. x 2 + y 2 . This function has a local minimum at the origin. The matrix of 2 0 second partials is . 0 2 2. −x 2 − y 2 . This function hasa local maximum at the origin. The matrix of −2 0 . second partials is 0 −2 3. x 2 − y 2 . This has a saddle at the origin. The matrix of second function 2 0 partials is . 0 −2 4. x y. This function also has a saddle at the origin. The matrix of second 0 1 partials is . 1 0

Advanced Calculus Demystified

80

The ﬁrst two give us a clue as to the quantity we would like to look at. Consider the product of the upper-left and lower-right entries of the matrix. For the maximum and minimum above this quantity is positive and for the ﬁrst of the above saddles it is negative. However, this alone would not be enough to distinguish maxima and minima from saddles, as the second of the saddles shows. To compensate we must subtract the product of the upper-right and lower-left entries, yielding the formula ∂2 f ∂2 f ∂2 f ∂2 f − ∂ x 2 ∂ y2 ∂ x∂ y ∂ y∂ x However, since the mixed partials are equal we can shorten this to ∂2 f ∂2 f − ∂ x 2 ∂ y2

∂2 f ∂ x∂ y

2

This is indeed the right quantity to look at, in the sense that if it is greater than zero you have a maximum or minimum, and if it is less than zero you have a saddle. Unfortunately, if it is zero you have no information; you may be at a maximum, minimum, saddle, or something much more bizarre. Nonetheless, we will single this out as our ﬁrst test.

Test 1 Let D(x, y) = 0, 0.

D(x0 , y0 ) > 0 ⇒ f (x, y) has a local max or min at (x0 , y0 ). D(x0 , y0 ) < 0 ⇒ f (x, y) has a saddle at (x0 , y0 ). D(x0 , y0 ) = 0 ⇒ No information about f (x0 , y0 ).

EXAMPLE 7-14 We ﬁnd the location of all saddles of the function f (x, y) = x 2 + 2x y + 3y 3 . First, we will need to narrow down the possibilities by ﬁnding the critical points. To do this we ﬁnd the gradient. ! " ∇ f = 2x + 2y, 2x + 9y 2

CHAPTER 7

Vectors and Gradients

81

Setting this equal to the vector 0, 0 gives us the system of equations 2x + 2y = 0 2x + 9y 2 = 0 The ﬁrst equation tells us that x = −y. Plugging this into the second equation then gives −2y + 9y 2 = 0 Either y = 0 (and hence x = 0) or we can divide both sides of this equation by y to get −2 + 9y = 0 Solving then gives us y = 29 . Hence, we have critical points at (0, 0) and − 29 , 29 . To determine which of these are saddles we compute the matrix of second partials: ⎡ 2 ⎤ ∂ f ∂2 f ⎢ ∂x2 2 2 ∂ x∂ y ⎥ ⎢ ⎥ = ⎢ 2 ⎥ ⎣ ∂ f 2 18y ∂2 f ⎦ ∂ y∂ x ∂ y 2 And so D(x, y) = 36y − 4 We now check each critical point: D(0, 0) = −4 < 0 ⇒ (0, 0) is a saddle.

When D(x0 , y0 ) > 0 it would be nice to have a second test to determine whether (x0 , y0 ) is a local maximum or a local minimum. Such a test can be easily guessed from our prototypical examples, f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 and f (x, y) = −x 2 − y 2 . 2 2 Notice that in both cases ∂∂ x 2f and ∂∂ y 2f have the same sign. When this sign is positive we have a local minimum and when it is negative we have a local maximum. This is precisely our second test.

EXAMPLE 7-15 Recall the function f (x, y) = x 2 + y+ 3y 3 from the previous example. 2x We 2 2 2 2 found critical points at (0, 0) and − 9 , 9 , and determined that at − 9 , 9 there was a local maximum or a local minimum. To determine which we need only look 2 at ∂∂ x 2f . Since this was 2, and 2 > 0, we conclude that at this critical point there is a local minimum. It is important to keep in mind that if D(x0 , y0 ) = 0 then we have no information about the nature of f (x0 , y0 ). We illustrate this in the next example. EXAMPLE 7-16 Consider the following functions: 1. f (x, y) = x 4 + y 4 2. f (x, y) = −x 4 − y 4 3. f (x, y) = x 2 y 2 In each case the only critical point is at (0, 0) and D(0, 0) = 0. But at (0, 0) in the ﬁrst case there is a local minimum, in the second there is a local maximum, and in the third there is a saddle. Problem 66 Find the local maxima, minima, and saddles of the following functions. 1. x y + 2x − 3y − 6 2. x 3 − x y + y 2 Problem 67 For the function sin(x + y) show that D(x, y) = 0 at every point (x, y).

7.5 Application: Optimization Problems An important application of the mathematics of the previous section is to optimization problems. You encountered several such problems in a ﬁrst semester calculus class. You can now handle much more complicated situations. We illustrate this with an example. EXAMPLE 7-17 We ﬁnd the largest volume of a box with an open top, and surface area 100 m2 . First, we let the dimensions of the box be a, b, and c, with c the height. Then the surface area is given by S.A. = 100 = ab + 2ac + 2bc Solving this equation for c gives c=

100 − ab 2(a + b)

The volume, of course, is the quantity abc. Substituting for c then gives us Volume = ab

100 − ab 2(a + b)

Thinking of volume, then, as a function V (a, b) we now search for critical points. The gradient is a bit tedious to compute, but with some work you can show it simpliﬁes to & ' −2a 2 b2 + 200b2 − 4ab3 −2a 2 b2 + 200a 2 − 4a 3 b ∇V (a, b) = , 4(a + b)2 4(a + b)2 Each component of this vector can only be zero if the numerators are zero, so we get two equations: 0 = −2a 2 b2 + 200b2 − 4ab3 0 = −2a 2 b2 + 200a 2 − 4a 3 b

84

We may safely assume that neither a nor b are zero. Dividing the ﬁrst equation by 2b2 and the second by 2a 2 then gives 0 = −a 2 + 100 − 2ab

(7-1)

0 = −b2 + 100 − 2ab Solving both equations for 2ab and setting them equal to each other gives us −a 2 + 100 = −b2 + 100 and thus (since we are only interested in positive values of a and b) we may conclude a = b. Combining this with Equation 7-1 tells us 0 = −a 2 + 100 − 2a 2 Solving this for a reveals √ 10 3 a= 3 The fact that a = b then gives us √ 10 3 b= 3 Finally, our expression for c in terms of a and b above yields √ 5 3 c= 3 The volume is thus √ 500 3 Volume = abc = 9

7.6 LaGrange Multipliers Suppose you wanted to look for the maximum value of f (x) = 13 x 3 − x, on the interval [−2, 3]. This function has two critical points, and the one at x = −1 is a local maximum. But to conclude that f (−1) = 23 is the maximum value of f (x) on the indicated domain would be incorrect. This is because the maximum is attained at one of the endpoints of the domain, namely at x = 3. At this point f (3) = 6.

D q

Figure 7-2 The function f (x, y) has a local maximum at the point q, but the absolute maximum on the domain D is the point p on the boundary

The same kind of thing can happen with functions f (x, y) of two variables. Using techniques of the previous section we can look for, and analyze, critical points in the interior of the domain D of f . But if we are interested in the maximum value that f attains on D we may have to look at the points around the boundary of D, as in Figure 7-2. In the one-variable case this was easy, since it was just a matter of checking two points. When there are multiple variables there are an inﬁnite number of points around the boundary of D, so we need some technique other than just plugging values into f . In Figure 7-3 we see the contours for the function f (x, y) of Figure 7-2, superimposed on the domain D. As is customary, we will denote the points around the boundary of D as ∂ D. (Don’t get this confused with a partial derivative.) Notice that the maximum and minimum values of f on ∂ D occur at the places where the level curves of f are tangent to ∂ D. The key fact that we will use is that the vectors ∇ f are always perpendicular to the level curves of f . So, at a point p = (x0 , y0 ) where a level curve of f is tangent to ∂ D we will see ∇ f (x0 , y0 ) perpendicular to ∂ D. The next step is to ﬁnd a new function, g(x, y), for which ∂ D is a level curve. The vector ∇g is always perpendicular to all of its level curves. In particular, ∇g(x0 , y0 ) will be perpendicular to ∂ D at (x0 , y0 ). See Figure 7-4.

Since ∇ f (x0 , y0 ) and ∇g(x0 , y0 ) are perpendicular to the same curve they must be parallel to each other. If vectors V and W are parallel, then one is a scalar multiple of the other. In other words, there is a constant λ such that V = λW . Putting all this together, we ﬁnd that if a maximum (or minimum) of f occurs at a point (x0 , y0 ) of ∂ D then there must be a constant λ such that ∇ f (x0 , y0 ) = λ∇g(x0 , y0 ). Using this information we get a ﬁnite number of candidate points at which to look for maxima and minima. EXAMPLE 7-18 Let f (x, y) = 2x 2 + 3y 3 , and suppose D is the set of points (x, y) in R2 satisfying x 2 + y 2 ≤ 1. We will look for the largest value attained by f (x, y) on ∂ D. ∆f

To use the “method of Lagrange multipliers” the ﬁrst step is to ﬁnd a function g(x, y) for which ∂ D is a level curve. This is very easy: g(x, y) = x 2 + y 2 . Then the level curve g(x, y) = 1 is the curve x 2 + y 2 = 1, which is precisely the boundary of D. The next step is to look for points (x0 , y0 ), and values of λ, such that ∇ f (x0 , y0 ) = λ∇g(x0 , y0 ). We thus compute ∇ f = 4x, 9y 2 ∇g = 2x, 2y ! " So if 4x, 9y 2 = λ 2x, 2y we have 4x = λ2x and 9y 2 = λ2y. The ﬁrst of these equations tells us that either x = 0 or λ = 2. Case 1. x = 0. The boundary of D is the set of points satisfying x 2 + y 2 = 1. So if x = 0 then y = ±1. This means that we must check the points (0, 1) and (0, −1) for maxima and minima. Case 2. λ = 2. Combining this with the equations 9y 2 = λ2y then tells us 9y 2 = 4y. So again there are two cases: either y = 0 or 9y = 4, in which case y = 49 . Subcase A. y = 0. Similar to Case 1 above, the boundary of D is the points satisfying x 2 + y 2 = 1. If y = 0 then x = ±1. So we get two more points to check: (1, 0) and (−1, 0). Subcase B. y = 49 . Plugging this into x 2 + y 2 = 1 gives us x 2 + 16 = 1. 81 Solving for x then gives x = ± √ (− 964 , 49 ).

Thus we get two more points: (

√ 64 4 , 9) 9

and

We now have six points at which to look for maxima and minima of f . We do this simply by plugging them in: f (0, 1) = 3 f (±1, 0) = 2

f (0, −1) = −3 √ 454 64 4 , = f ± 9 9 243

So the maximum value of f on ∂ D is at (0, 1) and the minimum value is at (0, −1). Problem 69 Let f (x, y) = x 2 + y 2 + 2y − 1 and D = {(x, y)|x 2 + 1. Find the locations of all critical points of f (x, y) on D. 2. Find the absolute minimum of f (x, y) on D.

7.7 Determinants In the previous chapter we saw that the dot product was a way to take two vectors and produce a meaningful number. In two dimensions there is another such way. Suppose V = a, b and W = c, d are vectors and consider the parallelogram formed by two parallel copies of each. V W W V

We wish to determine the area of this parallelogram. Notice in the ﬁgure below that there are four triangles and two small rectangles inside a larger rectangle. The area of the desired parallelogram is found by subtracting these areas.

b+d d

b c

a

a+c

The area of the large parallelogram is (a + c)(b + d). The area of each small rectangle is bc. The area of two of the triangles is 12 ab and the other two is 12 cd. Thus the desired area is

1 1 ab − 2 cd Area = (a + c)(b + d) − 2bc − 2 2 2 = ab + ad + bc + cd − 2bc − ab − cd = ad − bc We often organize the information contained in a set of vectors by writing them in a matrix. The area of the parallelogram between them is then the determinant of

CHAPTER 7

89

the matrix. We write this as follows: a b c d = ad − bc Notice that there is a bit more information in the determinant than just the area, since our answer may be negative. The sign of the answer tells us the order of V and W . If we go counterclockwise to get from V to W then the sign of the determinant is positive. Otherwise it is negative. For this reason we call the value of the determinant the signed area of the parallelogram spanned by V and W . EXAMPLE 7-19 We compute the (signed) area of the parallelogram spanned by the vectors 1, 2 and 4, 3. 1 2 3 4 = 1 · 4 − 2 · 3 = −2 In three dimensions there is also a determinant, but it is slightly more complicated. If we take four parallel copies of three vectors then they span a 3-dimensional ﬁgure called a parallelepiped. You should think of this as a cube that has been stretched, skewed, and rotated. The determinant of the matrix that is comprised of these vectors is then the volume of this ﬁgure.

W V

A matrix containing the vectors U = a, b, c, V = d, e, f , and W = g, h, i would be written like this ⎡ ⎤ a b c ⎢ ⎥ ⎣d e f ⎦ g h i

Advanced Calculus Demystified

90

To write the determinant of this matrix it is helpful to copy the entire matrix next to the original one. Then add up all the “right-slanting” products and subtract all the “left-slanting” products. a b c a b c d e f d e f = aei + bf g + cdh − af h − bdi − ceg g h i g h i

Once again this answer may be negative, indicating the way in which U , V , and W are situated. The sign is positive if, when we sweep the ﬁngers of our right hand from U to V , our thumb points in the direction of W . Once again, this is the “right-hand rule,” that we encountered earlier. A second way to remember how to compute the determinant of a 3 × 3 matrix is to reduce it to computing the determinants of three 2 × 2 matrices: a d g

b e h

c f i

e = a h

d f − b g i

d f + c i g

e h

Notice that each term on the left is preceded by one element from the top row of the matrix, with alternating signs. The 2 × 2 matrix in each term is the one you get from the original matrix by deleting the corresponding row and column. So, for example, the ﬁrst term is preceded by a, since that is the ﬁrst element of the top row. The 2 × 2 matrix in the ﬁrst term is the one you get by eliminating the row and column containing a.

7.8 The Cross Product A challenging problem is to ﬁnd the area of a parallelogram deﬁned by two vectors in three dimensions. If the vectors are V = a, b, c and W = d, e, f then this area is given by Area(V, W ) =

(b f − ec)2 + (cd − a f )2 + (ae − bd)2

The general form of this equation looks a lot like the Pythagorean Theorem: some quantity is the square root of the sum of squares. We can employ this observation to make the above formula a bit more compact: Area(V, W ) = |b f − ec, cd − a f, ae − bd| Note that we started with two vectors, V and W , and ended up with a third that was somehow related. This gives us a new kind of product, called the cross product: V × W = b f − ec, cd − a f, ae − bd Recall that the dot product was a way to take two vectors and multiply them, with the result being a scalar. The cross product, by comparison, is a way to multiply and get a third vector. The astute reader will notice that each component of the cross product is the determinant of a 2 × 2 matrix. We may thus write its formula like this: & b V × W = e

c c , f f

a a , d d

' b e

92

It is traditional to deﬁne the vectors i = 1, 0, 0, j = 0, 1, 0, and k = 0, 0, 1. Using this we may rewrite the deﬁnition of the cross product as b c a c a b V × W = i − j + k e f d f d e We introduced a negative sign in the second term and switched the order of the columns of the second matrix. Now our formula looks just like a determinant: i j k V × W = a b c d e f This last formula is probably the easiest way to remember how to compute the cross product of two vectors. EXAMPLE 7-21 We compute the area of the parallelogram spanned by the vectors 1, 1, 0 and 1, 2, 3. To do this we ﬁrst compute the cross product: i j 1, 1, 0 × 1, 2, 3 = 1 1 1 2

k 0 3

= i(3 − 0) − j(3 − 0) + k(2 − 1) = 3i − 3j + k = 3, −3, 1 The desired area is now the magnitude of this vector: √ |3, −3, 1| = 32 + (−3)2 + 12 = 19 We have already seen that the magnitude of the cross product has some geometric signiﬁcance. What about its direction? To get a clue we compute V · (V × W ). Suppose V = a, b, c and W = d, e, f . Then, we compute: V · (V × W ) = a, b, c · b f − ec, cd − a f, ae − bd = a(b f − ec) + b(cd − a f ) + c(ae − bd) = ab f − aec + bcd − ba f + cae − cbd =0

From this we may conclude that V × W is perpendicular to V . A similar computation shows W · (V × W ) = 0, and hence V × W is perpendicular to W as well. We conclude V × W is perpendicular to the plane containing V and W . EXAMPLE 7-22 We ﬁnd a unit vector that is perpendicular to both 1, 1, 0 and 1, 2, 3. From the previous problem we know that the cross product of√these two vectors is the vector 3, −3, 1, and that the magnitude of this vector is 19.

Calculus with Parameterizations

8.1 Differentiating Parameterizations Suppose φ(t) = ( f (t), g(t)) is a parameterization of some curve in R2 . What should it mean to differentiate φ at t = t0 ? Obviously, the answer will involve two numbers, f (t0 ) and g (t0 ). The best way to make sense out of this pair of numbers is as a vector: ! " d φ(t0 ) = f (t0 ), g (t0 ) dt If this vector is drawn with its base at the point φ(t0 ) then it is tangent to the parameterized curve. In addition, if t really represents time, and φ(t) the coordinates of a particle, then the length of this vector tells how fast the particle is moving at time t0 .

EXAMPLE 8-1 At time t the coordinates of a car are φ(t) = (t 2 , t 3 ). We wish to determine how fast, and in what direction, the car is heading at time t = 2. First, we differentiate the parameterization: φ (t) = 2t, 3t 2 Thus, φ(2) = 4, 12 The direction of the car is thus the direction that this vector is pointing. Its speed is given by the magnitude of this vector: √ |4, 12| = 42 + 122 = 4 10 Nothing signiﬁcant changes in three dimensions, as in our next example. EXAMPLE 8-2 We ﬁnd the speed of a particle moving along the helix φ(t) = (cos t, sin t, t). First, we ﬁnd the tangent vector: φ (t) = − sin t, cos t, 1 To ﬁnd the speed we compute the magnitude of this vector: √ |− sin t, cos t, 1| = (− sin t)2 + (cos t)2 + 12 = 2 Note that our answer does not depend on t, telling us a particle moving along the spiral by the given parameterization travels with constant speed. Differentiating parameterizations of surfaces is a bit more complicated, since now there are two variables. For example, consider the general parameterization (u, v) = ( f (u, v), g(u, v), h(u, v)) We can take the partial derivative of with respect to u, say, simply by taking the partial derivatives of f , g, and h with respect to u. Our answer is again a vector: & ' ∂ ∂ f ∂g ∂h = , , ∂u ∂u ∂u ∂u Geometrically, ∂ (u 0 , v0 ) is a tangent vector to the surface parameterized by ∂u (u 0 , v0 ). at the point (u 0 , v0 ).

EXAMPLE 8-3 We ﬁnd two vectors tangent to the graph of z = x 2 + y 3 at the point (2, 1, 5). This surface is parameterized by (x, y) = (x, y, x 2 + y 3 ) The desired point is at (2, 1). To ﬁnd two tangent vectors we simply take the partial derivatives of and evaluate at (2, 1). ∂ = 1, 0, 2x ∂x and so, ∂ (2, 1) = 1, 0, 4 ∂x Similarly, ∂ = 0, 1, 3y 2 ∂y and so, ∂ (2, 1) = 0, 1, 3 ∂y We conclude 1, 0, 4 and 0, 1, 3 are two vectors tangent to the graph of z = x 2 + y 3 at the point (2, 1, 5). EXAMPLE 8-4 If (θ, φ) represents your longitude and latitude, then your position on the Earth’s surface is given by (θ, φ) = (R cos φ cos θ, R cos φ sin θ, R sin φ) where R represents the radius of the Earth (assuming the Earth is a perfect sphere). Note the similarity to spherical coordinates. We explore the geometric meaning of the derivatives of this parameterization.

The magnitude of this vector is thus ∂ 2 2 2 ∂φ = (R sin φ cos θ ) + (R sin φ sin θ) + (R cos φ) # = R 2 sin2 φ + R 2 cos2 φ =R Notice that the result is constant, i.e., it does not depend on your longitude or latitude. The signiﬁcance of this is that if you change your latitude by roughly 1 radian then you change your position on the Earth by a constant amount. We will see in a moment that this is very different than changing your longitude. Let’s try differentiating with respect to θ . ∂ = −R cos φ sin θ, R cos φ cos θ, 0 ∂θ The magnitude of this vector is thus ∂ 2 2 ∂θ = (R cos φ sin θ ) + (R cos φ cos θ) = R cos φ This says that if you change your longitude by 1 radian, then the actual change in distance on the Earth’s surface is proportional to the cosine of your latitude.

8.2 Arc Length Suppose C is a curve, in R2 or R3 , which is parameterized by the function (t), where a ≤ t ≤ b. We would like to ﬁnd the length of C. We do this by sampling C at various points, looking at the length of the line segment connecting adjacent points, and adding these lengths. The result will be an approximation of the length of C. This approximation will get better and better as we sample more and more points along C. In the resulting limit, we obtain an integral which represents the length. The steps are very straightforward. n 1. Choose n points in the interval [a, b]. We will call these points {ti }i=0 . 2. Note that (ti ) is a point of C. For each i we connect (ti+1 ) to (ti ) by a line segment to approximate C. 3. The length of each line segment is precisely the length of the vector (ti+1 ) − (ti ).

8.3 Line Integrals Let C represent some parameterized curve in R2 . Let f (x, y) be a function on R2 . In this section we make some sense of the integral of f (x, y) over C. First, let’s take a step backward and recall the steps used to deﬁne the integral of a function of one variable, f (x), over an interval [a, b]. Choose n points in [a, b], which we denote as {xi }. Let xi = xi+1 − xi . For each i compute f (xi )xi . Sum over all i.

The trick to deﬁning the integral of f (x, y) over a parameterized curve C is to follow the above steps as closely as possible. As we will see presently, the most difﬁcult step is probably the one that seems most innocent—the second. 1. Choose n points along the curve C, which we denote as { pi }. (Note that pi is a label for a point of R2 , and as such will have two coordinates.) 2. Let δpi denote the length, along C, from pi to pi+1 . 3. For each i compute f ( pi )δpi . 4. Sum over all i.

5. Deﬁne f (x, y) ds to be the limit of the sum from the previous step as C

n → ∞.

CHAPTER 8

103

The resulting integral is called the line integral of f (x, y). Unfortunately, in practice the above steps are impossible to carry out. To make things easier we employ a parameterization of C to translate the problem to an integral of a function of one variable over an interval of R1 . To this end, let (t), where a ≤ t ≤ b, be a parameterization of C. We now repeat the above steps as closely as possible, this time using . 1. Choose n points in the interval [a, b]. We denote these points as {ti }. The set {(ti )} is then a collection of n points on C. 2. Let ti = ti+1 − ti . Let δti denote the length, along C, from {(ti )} to {(ti+1 )}. 3. For each i compute f ((ti ))δti . A little algebraic trickery yields f ((ti ))δti = f ((ti ))δti = f ((ti ))

4. Sum over all i.

5. The integral f (x, y) ds is deﬁned to be the limit of the sum from the C

previous step as n → ∞. But as n → ∞ it also follows that t i → 0. Our ∂ δti . Hence, integrand contains the term t . As t → ∞ this converges to i ∂t i our integral has become

b f (x, y) ds =

∂ dt f ((t)) ∂t

Note that if f (x, y) = 1 then the line integral of f over C gives precisely the length of C. This gives us one way to think about line integrals. Imagine a vast plane. At every point of the plane there is a number which represents how fast a point moving through that point will travel. If this number is always one, then a point moving along in the plane will always travel with unit speed. Its total travel time will then be exactly the same as the total distance it travels. But if the number at each point isn’t always one then its travel time may be different than the total distance traveled. The line integral gives the total travel time. EXAMPLE 8-6 We integrate the function f (x, y) = y over the top half of the circle of radius 1. This curve is parameterized by (t) = (cos t, sin t),

8.4 Surface Area One of the most interesting applications of multiple integrals is the computation of surface area. Let R be a rectangle in the x y-plane. The problem is to ﬁnd the area of the portion of the surface parameterized by (u, v). Let R denote the domain of . To ﬁnd the area we follow similar steps that we used to derive the formula for the volume under f (x, y). 1. We begin by choosing a grid of points {(u i , v j )} in R. 2. For each grid point locate the point (u i , v j ) in R3 . Connecting adjacent points produces a bunch of parallelograms that piece together to form an approximation of the parameterized surface.

3. We now compute the area of each parallelogram. Observe that each parallelogram is spanned by the vectors Vu = (u i+1 , v j ) − (u i , v j ) and Vv = (u i , v j+1 ) − (u i , v j ) The desired area is thus the magnitude of the cross product of these vectors: Area = |Vu × Vv | We now do some algebraic tricks: uv |Vu × Vv | = |Vu × Vv | uv Vu Vv = × uv u v 4. The surface area is the limit, as u and v tend toward zero, of the sum of this quantity over all i and j: Vu Vv S.A. = lim u × v uv u,v→0 i, j

EXAMPLE 8-7 We will use the surface area formula derived above to show that the area of a sphere of radius R is 4π R 2 . The most natural parameterization of the sphere comes, of course, from spherical coordinates: (θ, φ) = (R sin φ cos θ, R sin φ sin θ, R cos φ) 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

The tricky part of this computation is the limits of integration. Notice that the domain of integration is the region inside r in the x y-plane.

We will show here how this formula can be derived from the one above. Suppose we begin with the graph of a function z = f (x), where 0 ≤ a ≤ x ≤ b, and get a surface by revolving it around the z-axis. The resulting surface is best

8.5 Surface Integrals Just as we could integrate a function over a parameterized curve, we can also integrate functions over parameterized surfaces. The resulting integrals are called surface integrals. Here’s a way to think about surface integrals. Imagine that there is a fog permeating all of R3 . As the fog may not be uniform there is some function f (x, y, z) which gives the density of the water droplets at each point. Now imagine we have some surface in R3 cutting through the fog. We wish to ﬁnd out the total amount of water droplets in the surface. If f (x, y, z) = 1, then this will just be the area of the surface. If not, then the answer will be the surface integral of f . Recall the relationship between the arc length of a curve C parameterized by a function (t) and the line integral of a function f (x, y) over C: Arc Length

The surface integral of f (x, y, z) over the surface S is denoted as f (x, y, z) dS S

114

EXAMPLE 8-10 z Let f (x, y, z) = x 2 +y 2 . We calculate the surface integral of f over the cylinder of radius 1, centered on the z-axis, and lying between the plane z = 0 and z = 1. First, the surface is parameterized using cylindrical coordinates as follows: (θ, z) = (cos θ, sin θ, z) 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤z≤1

To compute the surface integral we will next need the partial derivatives of this parameterization: ∂ = − sin θ, cos θ, 0 ∂θ ∂ = 0, 0, 1 ∂z The cross product of these vectors is i j ∂ ∂ × = − sin θ cos θ ∂θ ∂z 0 0

k 0 = cos θ, sin θ, 0 1

Finally, the magnitude of the cross product is then ∂ ∂ 2 2 ∂θ × ∂z = cos θ + sin θ = 1 We are now ready to compute the surface integral:

Problem 90 Calculate the surface integral of the function f (x, y, z) = x + y + z over the portion of the plane z = x + y that lies above the square in the x y-plane where 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 and 0 ≤ y ≤ 1. Problem 91 Calculate the surface integral of the function f (x, y, z) = z over the top half of the sphere of radius 1.

8.6 Volume In this section, we revisit the calculation of volumes of regions in R3 . If the region is nice enough, we can just compute a triple integral of the function f (x, y, z) = 1 over the region. However, if the region is complicated we may want to employ a parameterization to help calculate its volume. The steps to deﬁne the volume by way of integrating a parameterization are similar to those used to deﬁne arc length and surface area. To this end, we suppose (u, v, w) is a parameterization of a volume V in R3 , with domain Q. We now derive a formula for the volume of V by executing the following steps: 1. Choose a lattice of points {(u i , v j , wk )} in Q. This deﬁnes a lattice {(u i , v j , wk )} in V . 2. Connecting adjacent lattice points breaks up V into a bunch of parallelepipeds. 3. We compute the volume of each parallelepiped. The edges are given by the vectors Vu = (u i+1 , v j , wk ) − (u i , v j , wk ) Vv = (u i , v j+1 , wk ) − (u i , v j , wk ) Vw = (u i , v j , wk+1 ) − (u i , v j , wk ) The desired volume is then given by the determinant of the 3 × 3 matrix whose rows are Vu , Vv , and Vw . We denote this as |Vu Vv Vw | The usual algebraic trickery transforms this as follows: uvw |Vu Vv Vw | = |Vu Vv Vw | uvw Vu Vv Vw uvw = u v w

Advanced Calculus Demystified

116

4. The desired volume is now the limit, as u, v, and w tend toward 0, of the sum of this quantity over all i, j, and k: Vu Vv Vw Volume = lim u v w uvw u,v,w→0 i, j,k But, as in the computation of surface area, lim

u→0

(u i+1 , v j , wk ) − (u i , v j , wk ) ∂ Vu = lim = u u→0 u ∂u

Hence, after taking the limit the above summation becomes ∂ ∂ ∂ Volume = ∂u ∂v ∂w du dv dw Q

EXAMPLE 8-11 We show that the volume bounded by a sphere of radius R is 43 πR 3 . One way to do this is to notethat the top half of the sphere can be realized as the graph of the equation z = R 2 − x 2 − y 2 . The desired volume can thus be obtained by doubling a double integral: 1 Volume = 2 −1 −

√

√

R 2 −x 2

R 2 − x 2 − y 2 dx dy

R 2 −y 2

However, this integral is difﬁcult to evaluate. Instead, we employ a parameterization. The sphere is best parameterized in the usual way by using spherical coordinates: (ρ, θ, φ) = (ρ sin φ cos θ, ρ sin φ sin θ, ρ cos φ) 0 ≤ ρ ≤ R,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤φ≤π

We now compute all three partials of the parameterization: ∂ = sin φ cos θ, sin φ sin θ, cos φ ∂ρ ∂ = −ρ sin φ sin θ, ρ sin φ cos θ, 0 ∂θ ∂ = ρ cos φ cos θ, ρ cos φ sin θ, −ρ sin φ ∂φ

The integrand that we will need is the determinant of the 3 × 3 matrix whose rows are the above vectors: sin φ cos θ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ρ ∂θ ∂φ = −ρ sin φ sin θ ρ cos φ cos θ = −ρ 2 sin φ

sin φ sin θ ρ sin φ cos θ ρ cos φ sin θ

cos φ 0 −ρ sin φ

(Check this!)

We now get the desired volume by integrating: π 2π R ∂ ∂ ∂ Volume = ∂ρ ∂θ ∂φ dρ dθ dφ 0

The negative sign is an unfortunate artifact of the fact that the determinant of a matrix will change sign if you swap two rows or two columns. We will see in later sections that this can be used to our advantage. For now, though, just note that a volume must always be positive. Hence, we take the absolute value of the above answer to recover the correct formula, 43 π R 3 .

118

Although this method may seem very complicated at ﬁrst, observe that it has a signiﬁcant virtue: each step in the integration was very easy. This is the advantage of using parameterizations to compute volumes. Any volume problem can be solved by a double or triple integral. But employing a parameterization may transform difﬁcult integrals into easy ones. Problem 92 Show that the volume bounded by a cylinder of radius R and height h is π R 2 h by integrating with a parameterization from cylindrical coordinates. Problem 93 Calculate the volume under the cone z = 1 − x 2 − y 2 , and above the x y-plane by employing the parameterization (r, θ, z) = ((1 − z)r cos θ, (1 − z)r sin θ, z) 0 ≤ r ≤ 1,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤z≤1

8.7 Change of Variables In Calculus I and II you learn how to integrate a function of one variable over a domain in R1 . In Chapter 4, we learned how to integrate a function of two variables over a domain in R2 , and a function of three variables over a domain in R3 : f (x, y, z) dx dy dz V

If the domain V has a convenient parameterization then it may be easier to use this than to directly perform the integral. This is very similar to the relationship between line integrals and arc length, or surface integrals and surface area. As usual, we let denote a parameterization of V , with domain Q. If V is two dimensional we have ∂ ∂ du dv f (x, y) dx dy = f ((u, v)) ∂u ∂v V

And if V is three dimensional ∂ ∂ ∂ du dv dw f (x, y, z) dx dy dz = f ((u, v, w)) ∂u ∂v ∂w V

Vector Fields and Derivatives

9.1 Definition A vector ﬁeld is simply a choice of vector for each point. So, for example, a vector ﬁeld on R2 would have some vector at the point (1, 2), some other vector at the point (−1, 1), etc. We often draw vector ﬁelds by picking a few points and drawing the vector based at those points.

More formally, a vector ﬁeld is a function from R2 to R2 . What goes in to this function are the coordinates of the point where you are. What comes out are the components of the vector at that point. EXAMPLE 9-1 Consider the vector ﬁeld x y, x + y. At the point (1, 1) this vector ﬁeld contains the vector 1, 2. At the point (2, 4) it contains the vector 8, 6.

9.2 Gradients, Revisited We have already seen many vector ﬁelds, although we did not use this language. Whenever we take a function f and compute its gradient ∇ f at a point we get a vector. The set of all such vectors is then a vector ﬁeld, which we now call “grad f .” EXAMPLE 9-3 Suppose f (x, y) = x y 2 . Then the gradient of f (x, y) at the point (x, y) is ∇ f (x, y) = y 2 , 2x y. If we draw this vector at various values of x and y, we get the picture depicted below.

9.3 Divergence In the previous section, we saw that the gradient operator gives us a way to take a function f (x, y) and get a vector ﬁeld. In this section, we explore a way to take a vector ﬁeld and get a function. Eventually, we will see that the value of this function at a point is a measure of how much the vector ﬁeld is “spreading out” there. Suppose f (x, y, z), g(x, y, z), h(x, y, z) is a vector ﬁeld V on R3 . Then we deﬁne the divergence of V, “Div V,” to be the function ∂f ∂g ∂h + + ∂x ∂y ∂z Note that the ﬁrst term is associated with the ﬁrst component of V, the second term with the second component, and the third term with the third component. This, and the fact that the terms are being added, should remind you of the dot product. This gives us a purely notational way to remember how to calculate the divergence

CHAPTER 10

Integrating Vector Fields

In the previous chapter we introduced the concept of a vector ﬁeld, and looked at various concepts of differentiation in relation to these objects. In this chapter, we look at ways to integrate a vector ﬁeld. From calculus you should suspect that when we combine integration and differentiation something amazing will happen, akin to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. This is the topic of the next chapter.

10.1 Line Integrals We will always integrate a vector ﬁeld over a domain that can be parameterized by a line, surface, or volume. In this section, we look at the ﬁrst of these situations, integrals over parameterized curves. As in Section 8.3, these will be called line integrals. However, the deﬁnition of the integral of a vector ﬁeld over a parameterized curve is a bit different than the deﬁnition of a function over the same curve, so there is potential for confusion here.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

Before giving the deﬁnition, it may help to give a physical motivation for line integrals. Drop a leaf into a ﬂowing stream and follow it. Eventually, you may see it encounter a stick caught on some rocks. If the stick is perpendicular to the ﬂow of water, the leaf will get stuck. If the stick is parallel to the ﬂow, then the leaf rushes by as the force of the ﬂowing water pushes it along. But if the stick is at some angle to the ﬂow the leaf may hit it, and then slowly work its way past.

One can explain this by looking at the force the water can exert on the leaf. The leaf can only travel in a direction parallel to the stick, which we can represent as a vector, L. The water ﬂowing under the stick exerts some force on the leaf, which can also be represented as a vector, W . If these vectors are perpendicular then the leaf does not move, so the net force F on the leaf must be zero. On the other hand, the leaf moves the fastest when L and W are parallel, so F must be greatest in this situation. It should be no surprise, then, that F is proportional to the dot product, L · W . L

W

Before proceeding further, we must dispense with an important technicality. In the above ﬁgure, there were two choices for the vector L. One of these is depicted in the ﬁgure, and the other points in the exact opposite direction (but still along the stick). If the other choice was made, then the value of L · W would have exactly the opposite sign. Which is the correct choice? There is no right answer to this. We just

CHAPTER 10

Integrating Vector Fields

135

have to declare, before we do any problem, which is correct. Such a declaration is called an orientation. We will say more about this idea shortly. For now, just note that if the wrong choice was made then we can correct things by changing the sign of our ﬁnal answer. Now we suppose that somehow the leaf is conﬁned to some parameterized curve, C, as the water rushes past. Sometimes the water may be perpendicular to the curve, and sometimes it may be parallel. The problem is to evaluate the total force that the water exerts on the leaf as it travels along the curve. (If the leaf always moves with unit speed then this is called the work done by the water.) Let (t) be a parameterization of C. Let W be a vector ﬁeld that gives the direction and speed of the water at each point of the stream. The direction that the leaf is moving at the point (t) is the vector d . Let W((t)) be the vector of dt the vector ﬁeld W that is based at the point (t). Then the quantity we want to evaluate is d W((t)) · dt dt This integral is called the line integral of W over C, and is often denoted as W · ds C

Our answer, unfortunately, is still incomplete. Recall that at some point we must make a choice, called an orientation. This amounts to deciding if the vector d points dt the “right way” or the “wrong way.” An orientation can be denoted pictorially just by an arrow along C, showing the correct choice. But this does not mean that to do the integral, we must choose a parameterization whose derivative points the right way. If it does not then we just need to change the sign of our ﬁnal answer. EXAMPLE 10-1 Let W = x y, x + y. Let C be the oriented curve depicted below.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

136

The orientation is given by the direction of the arrow in the ﬁgure. The curve is parameterized by (t) = (t 2 , 3t),

0≤t ≤2

= 2, 3. This vector points in At the point (1) one can easily check that d dt the direction opposite to the orientation. This just means that after we integrate we will have to ﬂip the sign of our ﬁnal answer. We now calculate the line integral of W along C using . First, note that ! " ! " W((t)) = (t 2 )(3t), t 2 + 3t = 3t 3 , t 2 + 3t and d = 2t, 3 dt

As the orientation disagrees with we must now ﬂip the sign, obtaining our ﬁnal answer, −64 25 . An easy way to give an orientation on a curve parameterized by a function (t) is to simply declare that d points in the right direction. In this case, we may go dt ahead and use to evaluate the integral of W without any further considerations. In this case, we say the orientation of C is the one induced by .

As the orientation of C is chosen to agree with we do not need to worry about changing the sign of our answer. One may wonder about the connection between line integrals of vector ﬁelds as deﬁned here and line integrals of functions deﬁned previously. Let f denote a function on Rn and C a curve in Rn parameterized by (t). Let W be a vector ﬁeld chosen so that at the point (t) of C the vector W((t)) is tangent to C (i.e., it

10.2 Surface Integrals In Section 8.3 we deﬁned line integrals of functions, and in the previous section of this chapter we deﬁned line integrals of vector ﬁelds. By analogy we will now deﬁne surface integrals of vector ﬁelds, just as we had deﬁned surface integrals of functions.

The physical motivation for surface integrals of vector ﬁelds can again be seen by looking at a river of ﬂowing water. Imagine a net placed vertically in the river. Suppose you wanted to calculate the amount of water ﬂowing through the net at some particular moment in time. Let W denote a vector representing the ﬂow of water at some point of the net. Let N be a vector which is perpendicular to the net. If the net is parallel to the direction of ﬂow, then no water passes through it. In this situation, N is perpendicular to W . The most water passes through the net when the net is perpendicular to the ﬂow. In this case, N and W are parallel. It stands to reason, then, that the amount of water ﬂowing through the net is proportional to W · N .

Advanced Calculus Demystified

140

N W

Once again we encounter here a technical difﬁculty. Why did we draw the vector N in the ﬁgure the way we did? If the only condition on N is that it is perpendicular to the net, then why couldn’t N point in the exact opposite direction? The answer is that it can! Which choice is “correct” will again depend on a choice, called an orientation. We will discuss this more shortly. Now let S be a surface (representing the net), parameterized by (u, v). The vectors d and d are both tangent to S. Hence, the vector d × d is perpendu dv du du dicular, or normal, to S. Let W be a vector ﬁeld representing the water ﬂow, and W((u, v)) the vector of W at the point (u, v). Then the total amount of water ﬂowing through S is given by the integral

W((u, v)) ·

d d × du du

du dv

We call this the surface integral of W over S, and denote it by W · dS S

But this formula isn’t the whole story. We

still must deal with the issue of orientations. Otherwise, two people evaluating S W · dS may get different answers, depending on which parameterization of S they use to evaluate the integral. One way to give an orientation is to say which way is “up” at each point of S. This can be done by giving a vector O which is perpendicular to S at some point. Our parameterization “agrees” with the choice of orientation if the vector d × d du du points in the same direction as O. If our parameterization does not agree with the speciﬁed orientation then we can remedy things simply by negating our ﬁnal answer.

Hence, if we use the parameterzation to compute the integral of W over S we will have to remember to negate our ﬁnal answer. We now integrate π

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

A centerpiece of the calculus is the “Fundamental Theorem.” This important result says that when you take a function, differentiate it, and then integrate the result something special happens. In this chapter, we explore what happens when we do the same with vector ﬁelds. As there are many different ways to both differentiate and integrate a vector ﬁeld this gives us many different theorems. It should be pointed out that all of these results (including the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus) are special cases of the generalized Stokes’ Theorem, which we will not cover here. This approach uses the theory of differential forms, rather than vector calculus, and can be found in the book A Geometric Approach to Differential Forms, published by Birkh¨auser, 2006.

11.1 Path Independence The ﬁrst way we saw vector ﬁelds related to derivatives was through the gradient. In this section we see what happens when you start with a function f , take its gradient to get a vector ﬁeld, and then perform a line integral along a curve C on this ﬁeld.

Formally, we study integrals of the form ∇ f · ds C

To really understand what is going on we need to go back to the deﬁnition of a line integral. Suppose C is parameterized by (t), and the domain of is the interval [a, b]. The steps to deﬁne the integral of ∇ f over C are then 1. Choose n evenly spaced points in the interval [a, b]. Call these points {ti }. This gives us n point {(ti } on the curve C. 2. Let t = ti+1 − ti . 3. For each i compute ∇ f · d t at the point (ti ). dt 4. Sum over all i.

5. The integral C ∇ f · ds is deﬁned to be the limit of the sum from the previous step, as n → ∞. Let us now focus on the quantity computed in Step 3 above. To estimate ∇ f · V at a point p we may substitute ∇f · V ≈

f ( p) − f ( p + V t) t

This approximation gets better and better as t approaches zero. Furthermore, if t is small one can also make the approximation (ti+1 ) − (ti ) d ≈ dt ti+1 − ti Putting these together we have ∇f ·

f ((ti+1 )) − f ((ti )) d ≈ dt t

Hence, the term ∇ f · d t computed in Step 3 above can be approximated by dt f ((ti+1 )) − f ((ti )). We now shift our attention to Step 4: i

∇f ·

d f ((ti+1 )) − f ((ti )) ti ≈ dt i

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

147

But this last expression telescopes:

f ((ti+1 )) − f ((ti )) = f ((tn )) − f ((t0 )) = f ((b)) − f ((a))

i

We conclude with the following theorem: Suppose is a parameterization of C with domain [a, b] which agrees with the orientation on C. Then for any function f we have ∇ f · ds = f ((b)) − f ((a)) C

This should look a lot to you like the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. There is no such convenient name for it. Often it is referred to as the path independence of line integrals of gradient ﬁelds. This is because it says that the result of a line integral of a gradient ﬁeld only depend on the endpoints of the curve, and not the path used to get from one endpoint to the other. EXAMPLE 11-1 Suppose f (x, y) = x 3 + y 2 . Let

C be the top half of the unit circle, oriented counterclockwise. We compute C ∇ f · ds. All we really have to know is the endpoints of the curve C. The ﬁrst is (1, 0) and the second is (−1, 0). (Which one is which is determined by the orientation on C.) Hence, ∇ f · ds = f (−1, 0) − f (1, 0) = (−1) − (1) = −2 C

There is an important application of the independence of path of line integrals of gradient ﬁelds that may be familiar. Recall that a line integral of a vector ﬁeld says something about how much work you have to do to move an object along a curve C in the presence of a force W. Let’s say you want to know how much work you have to do against the force of gravity to get a heavy package up a mountain. Suppose the mountain is represented by the graph of a function f (x, y). That is, at the map cooridnates (x, y) the function f (x, y) gives you your altitude. Then the force of gravity at the point (x, y) is proportional to the vector ∇ f (x, y) (i.e., the steeper the mountain, the harder you have to work to get up it). Let’s suppose you have

148

identiﬁed your route on a map. You start at the point (x0 , y0 ), follow some curve C, and end up at (x1 , y1 ). Then the work you have to do to overcome gravity is ∇ f · ds = f (x1 , y1 ) − f (x0 , y0 ) C

Notice that the result is just the difference in elevation between your beginning and ending point, and doesn’t matter what path you take to get from one to the other!

with the induced orientation. This integral can be done directly, but the astute reader will notice that W = ∇(x y 2 z 3 ) Hence, we may use the independence of path of line integrals: ∇ f · ds = f ((2)) − f ((1)) = f (8, 4, 2) − f (1, 1, 1) = 1024 − 1 = 1023 C

Problem 121 In this section we saw that the work you must do to carry a package halfway up a mountain is just proportional to the difference in your starting and ending altitudes, and does not depend on the path you take. But it certainly seems like if you started at the bottom of a mountain, went to the top, and then came down to the halfway point, you’d be doing more work than if you just went straight up to the halfway point. Explain.

11.2 Green’s Theorem on Rectangular Domains The next theorem that relates derivatives, integrals, and vector ﬁelds is special to R2 . Recall that the curl of a vector ﬁeld V = f (x, y, z), g(x, y, z), h(x, y, z)

Advanced Calculus Demystified

150 in R3 is deﬁned to be the quantity

i ∂ ∇ ×V= ∂x f

k ∂ ∂ ∂ y ∂z g h j

Although the curl is only deﬁned for vector ﬁelds in R3 , we can use it to deﬁne a natural (and important!) operation on vector ﬁelds in R2 . First, given a vector ﬁeld W = f (x, y), g(x, y) on R2 we can easily create a vector ﬁeld on R3 : f (x, y), g(x, y), 0. We will abuse the notation and continue to call this new vector ﬁeld W. We now compute its curl: i j k ∂ ∂ ∂ ∇ ×W= ∂x ∂ y ∂z f (x, y) g(x, y) 0

∂g ∂f ∂g ∂ f = − i− − j+ − k ∂z ∂z ∂x ∂y

∂g ∂ f = − k ∂x ∂y Hence, |∇ × W| =

∂g ∂ f − ∂x ∂y

So, if W is a vector ﬁeld on R2 then the result of |∇ × W| is a function on R2 . This function acts much like the derivative of W. We now ask, what happens when we integrate the result of such a derivative? That is, if Q is some domain in R2 , then what can we say about

|∇ × W| dx dy =

Q

Q

∂g ∂ f − dx dy ∂x ∂y

For simplicity, we will assume here that the domain of integration Q is a rectangle. In the next section, we will explore more general domains. To understand what is going on here, we will have to go all the way back to

the deﬁnition of a multiple integral. Recall the steps to deﬁne the value of h(x, y) dx dy: Q

Hence, in Step 3 above we compute

∂g ∂ f − ∂x ∂y

(xi , y j )xy

If x and y are small, we may make the following approximations: g(xi+1 , y j ) − g(xi , y j ) ∂g (xi , y j ) ≈ ∂x x and f (xi , y j+1 ) − f (xi , y j ) ∂f (xi , y j ) ≈ ∂y y Hence, the quantity computed in Step 3 can be approximated by

∂g ∂ f − (xi , y j )xy ∂x ∂y

g(xi+1 , y j ) − g(xi , y j ) f (xi , y j+1 ) − f (xi , y j ) ≈ − xy x y = g(xi+1 , y j ) − g(xi , y j ) y − f (xi , y j+1 ) − f (xi , y j ) x We now assume Q is the rectangle pictured in Figure 11-1. As in the ﬁgure, let L, R, B, and T denote the Left, Right, Bottom, and Top sides of this rectangle, with the indicated orientations. We now move on to Step 4. In this step, we are instructed to compute the sum of the values in Step 3. Using our approximation of each term, we can approximate

Note that each term in the ﬁnal expression is a sum involving values of f or g at points on the sides of Q. For example, in the ﬁrst sum we see the expression g(xn , y j ). The number n is a constant, and represents the largest index of the x-values. Hence, a point of the form (xn , y j ) must lie on R, the Right side of Q. We are now prepared to consider Step 5, where we take limits as x and y go to zero. We do this for each term in the above sum. For example, consider the limit of the ﬁrst term: m m lim g(xn , y j )y = lim g(xn , y j )y x,y→0

But this integral is the same as the integral of W over R with the orientation indicated in Figure 11-1. To see this, ﬁrst parameterize R by (y) = (xn , y),

y0 ≤ y ≤ ym

Then, d = 0, 1 dy and so

The other three terms in the sum from Step 4 give similar integrals over the remaining sides of Q. We are now ready for the conclusion: ∂g ∂ f − dx dy = W · ds + W · ds + W · ds + W · ds ∂x ∂y Q

The sides R, L, T , and B of Q, with the orientations as indicated in Figure 11-1, when taken together are referred to as its boundary. The usual notation for this is ∂ Q. Using this notation we can write our conclusion much more succinctly: Q

∂g ∂ f − dx dy = ∂x ∂y

W · ds ∂Q

This ﬁnal equation is known as “Green’s Theorem.” EXAMPLE 11-3 Let Q be the rectangle in the plane with corners at (0, 0), (2, 0), (0, 3), and (2, 3). Let W = x y, x 2 + y 2 . We will use Green’s Theorem to evaluate the integral of

Green’s Theorem enables us to see the geometric signiﬁcance of the value of − ∂∂ yf at a point (x0 , y0 ). Let Q denote a very small rectangle around this point.

Then at each point of Q the value of value at (x0 , y0 ). Hence, Q

Putting these together gives us

or, ∂f 1 ∂g (x0 , y0 ) − (x0 , y0 ) ≈ ∂x ∂y Area(Q)

So, the function ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf is a measure of the “circulation” of W around each point. There is a way to experience such a function for yourself. Many people enjoy going “tubing”—ﬂoating down a river in an inner tube. Suppose you are tubing and decide you want to stop somewhere to enjoy the scenery, so you drop an anchor. Then you notice that the water on your left is rushing past you faster than the water on your right. What happens? Your inner tube starts to turn. This turning is a measure of the strength of ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf .

11.3 Green’s Theorem over More General Domains Although we have only demonstrated the validity of Green’s Theorem for rectangular regions, it holds in much more generality. For other shaped regions Q the expression ∂ Q should generally be interpreted as the “edge” of Q, with a counterclockwise orientation. But there is an important technical restriction on the types of regions Q for which this is valid. We begin by examining what happens when we look at Green’s Theorem applied to two neighboring rectangles. T1

as Green’s Theorem would predict.

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

157

The cancellation of the integrals over R1 and L 2 illustrates an important phenomenon. For example, suppose Q is the following region.

Q

We can use Green’s Theorem to analyze the integral of ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf over Q by breaking it up into rectangles. The boundary of each rectangle then gets an orientation. When we add up the integral of W over the boundary of every rectangle, there is much cancellation, as in the following ﬁgure.

We end up with the integral of ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf being equal to the integral of W over the squares depicted in the following ﬁgure, with the indicated orientations. Hence, we say that this is the appropriate boundary of Q.

158

Advanced Calculus Demystified

In general, we may use the following rule-of-thumb to ﬁgure out the orientation on each loop of its boundary:

If Q is a connected region in R2 then the “outermost” loop of its boundary is oriented counterclockwise and all other loops of the boundary are oriented clockwise.

EXAMPLE 11-4 We use Green’s Theorem to integrate the function x 2 + y 2 over the inside of the unit circle. If we denote this region as Q, then the boundary of Q is the unit circle itself, with a counterclockwise orientation. This can be parameterized in the usual way by (t) = (cos t, sin t),

0 ≤ t ≤ 2π

To use Green’s Theorem we must ﬁnd functions f and g so that ∂g ∂ f − = x 2 + y 2 = y 2 − (−x 2 ) ∂x ∂y A suitable choice for g(x, y) can be found by integrating y 2 with respect to x, yielding the function x y 2 . Similarly, we may ﬁnd f (x, y) by integrating −x 2 with respect to y, yielding −x 2 y. So f (x, y), g(x, y) = −x 2 y, x y 2

2. Let C be the horizontal segment connecting (−1, 0) to (1, 0). Calculate C W · ds. 3. Use your previous answers to determine the integral of W over the top half of the unit circle (oriented counterclockwise).

11.4 Stokes’ Theorem In the previous section, we saw that if W is a vector ﬁeld in R2 , then we can view |∇ × W| as a kind of derivative. When we integrated this “derivative” we saw something special happen, namely Green’s Theorem:

|∇ × W| dx dy = Q

W · ds ∂Q

We now move our attention to R3 , and explore a similar phenomenon. Sup3

pose now W is a vector ﬁeld in R , and S is a surface. Then we wish to explore S (∇ × W) · dS. A reasonable guess, based on our experience from the previous

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

161

section, would be

(∇ × W) · dS = S

W · ds ∂S

This turns out to be the case, and is called Stokes’ Theorem. We will not prove it here, as the proof is extremely similar to that of Green’s Theorem. The strategy, once again, is to choose a lattice of points in S. This breaks up S into a bunch of parallelograms, and we can chase through the deﬁnition of S (∇ × W) · dS on each. At every parallelogram, we see that we get the same as the integral of W over the boundary of the parallelogram. But, because of orientation considerations, the integrals over the boundaries of neighboring parallelograms cancel. The result is the integral of W over the boundary of S. One potential complication in using Stokes’ Theorem is determining the boundary of the surface S in question. To get the proper orientation on ∂ S you need to know the orientation of S. Recall that this is often given by an outwardpointing normal vector, v. To get the orientation on the boundary, we use the “right-hand rule.” To do this point the thumb of your right hand in the direction of v. Your ﬁngers will then curl in the sense that determines the orientation on the boundary.

S

162

EXAMPLE 11-5 Let S denote the top half of the unit sphere, with orientation given by the normal vector 1, 0, 0 at the point (1, 0, 0). We use Stokes’ Theorem to integrate the curl of the vector ﬁeld −y, x, 0 over S. First, note that Stokes’ Theorem says that the answer will be the same as the integral of −y, x, 0 around ∂ S. The boundary of S (with proper orientation) is parameterized by (t) = (cos t, sin t, 0),

0 ≤ t ≤ 2π

Thus, we may integrate

EXAMPLE 11-6 Let S denote the portion of the paraboloid z = 2 − x 2 − y 2 that lies above the plane z = 1, with an orientation determined by an upward pointing normal. Let W = cos z, sin z, 0. We will use Stokes’ Theorem indirectly to ﬁnd S (∇ × W) · dS. First, let D be the disk in the plane z = 1 bounded by the unit circle, with orientation given by an upward pointing normal. Then ∂ S = ∂ D. Stokes’ Theorem says that the integral of ∇ × W over both D and S is equal to the integral of W over ∂ S. So, to get an answer to the original problem we may evaluate the integral of ∇ × W over D instead of S. To do the integral, note that ∇ × W = − cos z, sin z, 0

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

163

So, on the plane z = 4 we have ∇ × W = − cos 1, sin 1, 0. A parameterization for D is given by (r, θ ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, 1),

0 ≤ r ≤ 1,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π

The reader may check that ∂ ∂ × = 0, 0, r ∂r ∂θ We now integrate D

Problem 130 Let S be the portion of the cylinder x 2 + y 2 = 1 that lies between the planes z = 0 and z = 1, with orientation given by the normal vector 1, 0, 0 at the point (1, 0, 0). Let W = −yz, x z, 0. Calculate the integral of ∇ × W over S. Problem 131 If W is a vector ﬁeld deﬁned on all of R3 , then show that the integral of ∇ × W over the unit sphere is zero.

164

11.5 Geometric Interpretation of Curl Just as Green’s Theorem gave us a way to interpret the function ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf geometrically, we can use Stokes’ Theorem to give a geometric interpretation of the curl of a vector ﬁeld. Let W = f, g, h be a vector ﬁeld on R3 and p a point of R3 . Our goal is to understand the meaning of the vector ∇ × W( p). Let D be a small, ﬂat disk centered on p. If D is small enough, then ∇ × W is roughly constant at every point of D. Let (u, v) denote a parameterization of D, with domain R, in which ∂ ∂ ∂u × ∂v = 1 In particular, this implies ∂ ∂ Area(D) = ∂u × ∂v du dv R

=

du dv R

= Area(R) Since D is part of a plane the vectors normal to D are all parallel. Hence, our × ∂ is constant implies assumption that the magnitude of ∂ ∂u ∂v ∂ ∂ × =N ∂u ∂v for some ﬁxed unit vector N which is normal to D. We now examine the integral of the curl of W over D:

(∇ × W) · dS =

D

∇ × W((u, v)) · R

∂ ∂ × ∂u ∂v

∇ × W((u, v)) · N du dv

= R

≈ (∇ × W( p)) · N

du dv R

du dv

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

165

= (∇ × W( p)) · N Area(R) = (∇ × W( p)) · N Area(D) Recall that the dot product of two vectors is the product of their magnitudes times the cosine of the angle between them. Hence, if we choose D so that N points in the same direction as ∇ × W( p) we get (∇ × W( p)) · N = |∇ × W( p)| and hence (∇ × W) · dS ≈ |∇ × W( p)| Area(D) D

To go further we must appeal to Stokes’ Theorem:

(∇ × W) · dS =

D

W · ds ∂D

Putting these together then gives W · ds ≈ |∇ × W( p)| Area(D) ∂D

or, 1 |∇ × W( p)| ≈ Area(D)

W · ds ∂D

Our conclusion is that the magnitude of ∇ × W at the point p is a measure of how much W circulates around it. The direction of ∇ × W is the same as the direction of N , which was chosen to be perpendicular to the plane in which this circulation is greatest. In this sense, the curl of a vector ﬁeld is the three-dimensional version of the function ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf , which appears in Green’s Theorem.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

166 EXAMPLE 11-7 Let W = −y, x, 0. Then

i ∂ ∇ × W = ∂x −y

j ∂ ∂y x

k ∂ = 0, 0, 2 ∂z 0

This is a vector that points up. Notice that a plane perpendicular to an upward pointing vector is the plane that contains the “circulation” of W. In contrast, the circulation in a plane which contains ∇ × W would be zero.

3 Problem 132 Among all

circles C in R centered at the origin with radius 1, suppose the circulation C W · ds is greatest when C lies in the x z-plane. Suppose, furthermore, that when C is such a loop, W · ds = .5 C

Estimate ∇ × W at the origin. Problem 133 Suppose some vector ﬁeld has the property that the direction of every vector is up, and in any vertical plane parallel to the x z-plane the vector ﬁeld is constant. Then what direction would the curl of this vector ﬁeld point?

11.6 Gauss’ Theorem We know that one way to “differentiate” a vector ﬁeld is to take its curl. It is then not surprising that the integral of the curl of a vector ﬁeld should be special. Another way to “differentiate” a vector ﬁeld in R3 is to take its divergence. In this section,

CHAPTER 11

Integration Theorems

167

we explore what happens when we integrate the divergence of a vector ﬁeld. To this end, suppose W = f (x, y, z), g(x, y, z), h(x, y, z) Recall the deﬁnition of divergence: Div W = ∇ · W =

∂f ∂g ∂h + + ∂x ∂y ∂z

The result is a function on R3 . We may thus integrate this function over volumes V : ∇ · W dx dy dz V

As in the previous sections, we might guess that there is a relationship between this and the integral of W over the boundary of V :

∇ · W dx dy dz =

V

W · dS ∂V

This equality is in fact true, and is known as Gauss’ Divergence Theorem. The proof is again similar to the proof of Green’s Theorem. We choose a three

dimensional lattice of points in V , and approximate ∇ · W dx dy dz as a sum V

over the points of this lattice. The lattice breaks up V into little cubes, and we ﬁnd that the integral of ∇ · W over each cube is approximately equal to the integral of W over the boundary of each cube, with suitable orientations. But faces of cubes inherit opposite orientations from neighboring cubes, so in the sum all that is left are the faces of the cubes on the boundary of V . To properly orient ∂ V , we simply choose a normal vector that points “out” of V . EXAMPLE 11-8 Let W = x, y, z. We would like to ﬁnd the value of the integral of ∇ · W over the volume V bounded by the unit sphere. According to Gauss’ Theorem, this is equal to the integral of W over the unit sphere S.

Advanced Calculus Demystified

168

To evaluate this, we ﬁrst parameterize the unit sphere in the usual way with spherical coordinates: (θ, φ) = (sin φ cos θ, sin φ sin θ, cos φ) 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤φ≤π

Now we compute ∂ ∂ × = − sin φ sin θ, sin φ cos θ, 0 × cos φ cos θ, cos φ sin θ, − sin φ ∂θ ∂φ = − sin2 φ cos θ, − sin2 φ sin θ, − sin φ cos φ To check orientations, note that at (0, π2 ) = (1, 0, 0) this vector is equal to 1, 0, 0, which does indeed point out of V . Hence, we do not need to worry about negating the value of an integral that is computed using . Finally, we integrate: ∇ · W dx dy dz V

EXAMPLE 11-9 Let W = 0, 0, z 2 . We integrate ∇ · W over the volume V which is inside the cylinder x 2 + y 2 = 1, above the plane z = 0, and below the plane z = 1. To use Gauss’ Theorem we will have to parameterize each “side” of V . First, the cylinder, C: (θ, z) = (cos θ, sin θ, z),

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

0≤z≤1

Then the bottom, B: − (r, θ ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, 0),

Problem 137 The surfaces C and D are deﬁned by 1. C is the graph of the cylindrical equation r = cos θ in R3 , where 0 ≤ θ ≤ π and 0 ≤ z ≤ 1. 2. D is the set of points in the plane z = 1, which are within 12 of a unit away from the point ( 12 , 0, 1). Let W be the vector ﬁeld 0, x yz, 0. Calculate

W · dS.

Problem 138 Suppose ∇ · W = 0, and S1 and S2 are oriented surfaces with the same oriented boundary. Show that

W · dS =

S1

W · dS S2

(For simplicity you may assume that S1 and S2 only meet in their boundary.)

11.7 Geometric Interpretation of Divergence Recall that Green’s Theorem gave us a geometric interpretation of ∂∂gx − ∂∂ yf and Stokes’ Theorem gave us a geometric interpretation for ∇ × W. We now use Gauss’ Theorem to give a geometric interpretation of ∇ · W. This will be completely analogous. Let W denote a vector ﬁeld on R3 . Let p be a point in R3 and let B be a small ball centered on p. If B is chosen small enough then the function ∇ · W is approximately equal to ∇ · W( p) on all of B. Hence,

∇ · W dx dy dz ≈ ∇ · W( p)

B

dx dy dz B

= ∇ · W( p)Volume(B) Now, Gauss’ Theorem says

W · dS

∇ · W dx dy dz = B

∂B

Advanced Calculus Demystified

172 Combining these we get

W · dS

∇ · W( p)Volume(B) ≈ ∂B

or, 1 ∇ · W( p) ≈ Volume(B)

W · dS ∂B

The quantity ∂B W · dS is a measure of the net amount of W which leaves the ball B. So, if the same amount of W enters and leaves B then this integral will be zero. One way to think about this is that ∂B W · dS, and hence ∇ · W( p), is a measure of how much W “spreads out” at p.

EXAMPLE 11-10 The vector ﬁelds pictured below have more “leaving” each point than “entering,” and so have positive divergence. For example, the second one pictured might be something like x, y, z, whose divergence is 3. The third one might be 0, 0, z, whose divergence is 1. Can you think of a vector ﬁeld like the ﬁrst one?

EXAMPLE 11-11 The vector ﬁelds pictured below have zero divergence. The ﬁrst one is a constant vector ﬁeld. The second might be something like y, −x, 0.

Problem 10 The function (cos t 2 , sin t 2 ) describes a point moving clockwise around the circle, and slowing down until t = 0. (It then reverses direction when t becomes positive.)

Problem 16 Yes. For small values of t the function sin(t) is approximately equal to t. The value of x 2 + y 2 is the square of the distance from (x, y) to (0, 0), which is small for points near the origin.

Chapter 2 Quiz Problem 17 1. On the x-axis we know y = 0, and so the function f (x, y) = 0 (as long as x is not also 0). Similarly, on the y-axis we know x = 0, and so again the function f (x, y) = 0. But when x = y we have f (x, y) =

x sin x 2x 2

To evaluate the limit of this as x → 0 we use L’Hopital’s rule twice lim

x→0

x sin x sin x + x cos x = lim 2 x→0 2x 4x 2 cos x − x sin x = lim x→0 4 1 = 2

Hence, the limit does not exist. 2. As long as both x and y are not zero, the function x+y = 1. Hence, the function x+y f (x, y) = 1 for every value of x and y. The function f (x, y) is thus a constant function, which is continuous everywhere. 3. The ﬁrst problem we may encounter is a zero in the denominator, in which case x − y 2 = 0. The second problem is taking the log of a nonpositive number, in 1 2 which case x−y 2 ≤ 0. But this second situation implies x − y ≤ 0, and hence includes the ﬁrst. If x − y 2 ≤ 0, then x ≤ y 2 . Hence, the domain of f (x, y) is all the points (x, y) such that x > y 2 .

Problem 51 1. Start with the graph of x = y 2 + z. Now stretch this graph in the y-direction by a factor of 2. Finally, translate the entire picture −1 unit in the z-direction. 2. Start with the graph of z = x + sin y. Now reﬂect in the plane y = x, switching the roles of x and y. 3. Start with the cylinder r = 1. Stretch in the x-direction by 2 and the y-direction by 3, so that cross sections are now ellipses. Now move the central axis 1 unit in the y-direction and −1 unit in the z-direction. Note that this last translation does nothing to the shape. Problem 52 If the curves shown were circles, with the one corresponding to z = 1 having radius 1, then the uniform spacing of the level curves would tell us that the shape is a cone. Such a cone would be the graph of the cylindrical equation z = r , and would thus be parameterized by (r, θ ) = (r cos θ, r sin θ, r ) 0 ≤ r ≤ 1,

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π

The actual level curves we are given are ellipses. These can be obtained from circular level curves by multiplying the x- and y-coordinates by a factor which will stretch them the appropriate amount: (r, θ ) = (2r cos θ, 3r sin θ, r ) 0 ≤ r ≤ 1,

2. If the 2 were not at the x-coordinate then this parameterization would look just like spherical coordinates. The restrictions on ρ, θ, and φ would then specify one-quarter of a ball. The factor of 2 then stretches this shape in the x-direction. The result is the ﬁgure below.

Problem 66 1. First, we ﬁnd the critical points by looking for places where ∇ f (x, y) = 0, 0. Setting the vector ∇ f (x, y) = y + 2, x − 3 equal to 0, 0, we see that x must be 3 and y must be −2. So the only critical point is at (3, −2). Now note that D(x, y) = −1 for all (x, y). In particular, D(3, −2) = −1 < 0, so the critical point corresponds to a saddle. 2. Setting ∇ f (x, y) = 3x 2 − y, −x + 2y equal to 0, 0, we see that the coordinates of any critical point must satisfy the system 3x 2 − y = 0 −x + 2y = 0 The second equation tells us x = 2y. Plugging this into the ﬁrst equation gives 1 3(2y)2 − y = 0. Solving for y then gives solutions at y = 0 and y = 12 . Plug1 ging these numbers back into x = 2y gives us x values of 0 and 6 . So the 1 coordinates of the critical points are (0, 0) and ( 16 , 12 ). We now compute D(x, y) = (6x)(2) − (−1)2 = 12x − 1 We conclude D(0, 0) = −1 < 0, so (0, 0) is a saddle. On the other hand, 1 D( 16 , 12 ) = 2 − 1 = 1 > 0, so there is either as maximum or a minimum at 2 1 1 1 ( 6 , 12 ). As ∂∂x 2f ( 16 , 12 ) = 1 > 0, it must be a minimum. Problem 67 All second partials are equal to − sin(x + y), so

Problem 69 1. First we look for critical points in the interior of D by setting the partials equal to zero: ∂f = 2x = 0 ∂x ∂f = 2y + 2 = 0 ∂y From the ﬁrst equation x = 0, and from the second y = −1. So (0, −1) is a critical point. (To ﬁnd out what type we look at the matrix of second partials: 2 0

0 =4>0 2

Since ∂∂x 2f = 2 is also greater than 0, the point (0, −1) represents a minimum.) We now look for minima on the boundary of D using the method of LaGrange 2 multipliers. The boundary of D satisﬁes the equation g(x, y) = x 2 + y4 = 1. Hence, we must look for points (x0 , y0 ) that satisfy this and 2

∇ f (x0 , y0 ) = λ∇g(x0 , y0 ) Note that ∇ f = 2x, 2y + 2 and ∇g = 2x, 2y . Hence, we get two equations:

2x = λ(2x),

1 2y + 2 = λ y 2

Solving for y then gives y = − 43 . However, if we try to ﬁnd corresponding 2 values for x by plugging this into x 2 + y4 = 1 (the equation for the boundary of D) we get imaginary answers. 2 If x = 0, then the equation x 2 + y4 = 1 gives us y = ±2. So on the boundary of D the only potential minima are at (0, 2) and (0, −2). 2. To check which critical point represents the minimum of f we just plug them in: f (0, −1) = 1 − 2 − 1 = −2 f (0, 2) = 4 + 4 − 1 = 7 f (0, −2) = 4 − 4 − 1 = −1 So the smallest value attained by f (x, y) on D is −2, and this happens at (0, −1).

Thus the graph of f (x, y) can be obtained from the graph of z = x 2 + y 2 (a paraboloid) by shifting 2 units in the positive x-direction and 1 unit in the negative y-direction. This puts the “bottom” of the paraboloid at the point (2, −1). Hence, if (a, b) is any point other than (2, −1) then f (a, b) > 0. The result now follows easily: ∇ f · ds = f (a, b) − f (2, −1) = f (a, b) > 0 C

Problem 119 Suppose the beginning and ending point of C is p. Then ∇ f · ds = f ( p) − f ( p) = 0 C

Problem 126 1. Let C1 and C2 be two circles centered on the origin, oriented counterclockwise. Let Q be the region between these circles. Then ∂Q has two pieces.

Problem 128 The surface S is a disk in the yz-plane. Its boundary is thus the unit circle in the yz-plane. The tricky part is determining the proper orientation on the boundary circle. A normal vector giving the orientation of S is determined by ∂ ∂ × = r, 0, 0 ∂r ∂θ For r = 0 this is a vector which is parallel to the positive x-axis. The orientation on ∂S is then given by the right-hand rule, as in the following ﬁgure. z

The usual parameterization for the unit circle in the yz-plane would be φ(t) = (0, cos t, sin t),

0 ≤ t ≤ 2π

A parameterization for C0 is given by 0 (t) = (cos t, sin t, 0),

0 ≤ t ≤ 2π

0 = − sin t, cos t, 0 is the vector At the point 0 (0) = (1, 0, 0) the derivative d dt 0, 1, 0. This agrees with the arrow in the picture. Similarly, a parameterization for C1 is given by

0 At the point 0 (0) = (1, 0, 1) the derivative d = − sin t, cos t, 0 is again the dt vector 0, 1, 0. This is opposite to the arrow in the picture, so we will have to remember to negate the integral over this curve. Stokes’ Theorem says

parallel to the y-axis. The magnitude of ∇ × W can be estimated by 1 |∇ × W( p)| ≈ W · ds Area(D) C

where D is the disk whose boundary is the loop C. Since the radius of C is .1, the area of D is π(.1)2 . This gives us 1 1 W · ds = (.5) ≈ 15.92 Area(D) π(.1)2 C

We conclude that at the origin ∇ × W ≈ 0, 15.92, 0 Problem 133 The circulation of the vector ﬁeld around any loop in a plane parallel to the x z-plane would be zero, since the vector ﬁeld is constant on such a plane. A vector V that is perpendicular to such a loop points in the y-direction. The circulation around any horizontal loop would also have to be zero, since the vector ﬁeld is perpendicular to such a loop. A vector W that is perpendicular to such a loop points in the z-direction. The curl must then be perpendicular to both V and W , and so must point in the x-direction.

Problem 137 First, we observe that the polar equation r = cos θ is a circle of radius 12 , centered on the point ( 12 , 0). Hence, the surface C is a cylinder of height 2. The surface D is a disk, which caps off the top of the cylinder C, like an upside-down can. Let E denote the “bottom” of the can. That is, E is the set of points in the xy-plane which are within 12 of a unit away from the point ( 12 , 0, 0). We assume an orientation is given on E so that C, D, and E together form the (oriented) boundary of V , the points inside the “can.” Applying Gauss’ Theorem gives us

∇ · W dx dy dz =

V

W · dS C+D+E

W · dS +

= C+D

W · dS E

Now notice that on E the vector ﬁeld W = 0, 0, 0, so W · dS = 0 E

Putting these results together gives us

∇ · W dx dy dz =

V

W · dS C+D

We may thus obtain the desired answer by evaluating the integral on the left-hand side of this last equation. The ﬁrst thing we will need to evaluate this is the divergence of W: ∇ ·W=

∂ xyz = x z ∂y

Next, we will need to parameterize V . Notice that V is a solid cylinder of radius 12 , whose central axis has been translated 12 of a unit away from the z-axis, in the positive x-direction. A parameterization is thus given by

1 (r, θ, z) = r cos θ + , r sin θ, z 2 1 0≤r ≤ , 2

0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π,

The partials of this parameterization are ∂ = cos θ, sin θ, 0 ∂r ∂ = −r sin θ, r cos θ, 0 ∂θ ∂ = 0, 0, 1 ∂z The determinant of the matrix which consists of these vectors is cos θ −r sin θ 0
